Flag of Romania (GIF)

The national flag of Romania (Romanian: drapelul României), often referred to as the "Romanian Tricolor" or "Tricolorul," features a simple yet meaningful design. It consists of three vertical stripes of equal width, arranged from left to right: blue, yellow, and red. The colors hold historical and symbolic significance: the blue symbolizes freedom and the sky, the yellow represents justice and the wealth of the land, and the red stands for valor and the bloodshed in the struggle for independence. This flag design has a long history dating back to the 19th century, and it was officially adopted as the national flag of Romania in 1989, following the fall of the communist regime. The tricolor flag serves as a powerful emblem of Romania's national identity, its historical journey to independence, and its values of freedom, justice, and courage. Also, the Romanian flag's colors coincidentally resemble the flags of Andorra and Chad.
