Moldova adopted this flag on April 27, 1990. Since 2010, April 27 has been Moldova’s Flag Day. This flag’s tricolor is almost identical to that of Romania, reflecting the cultural affinity between the two. In the center of the yellow stripe is Moldova’s coat of arms, an eagle holding a shield charged with an aurochs. The eagle holds olive branches of peace in either talon.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
