Also, the Romanian flag's colors coincidentally resemble the flags of Andorra and Chad.

The blue shield on its coat of arms features an eagle, symbolizing courage, determination, strength, and magnificence. The eagle carries an Orthodox cross in its beak, a mace and a sword in its claws, symbolizing sovereignty. On the shield on the eagle's chest are the symbols of the country's historical provinces and two dolphins, symbolizing the country's Black Sea coast.
