The Current Version Of The Flag Of Romania Was Officially Adopted On 27 December 1989. The Romanian National Flag consists of a tricolor of vertical stripes – dark blue one, a yellow one and redone. The use of these colors dates back to the Wallachian uprising in 1821. During this time, it was determined that the colors used in what would one day be adopted as Romania’s national flag represented liberty, justice, and fraternity.


Origin Of The Flag

In 1834 the Ottoman government recognized local flags for use in Moldavia and Walachia. These two principalities that later joined to form Romania. Their local flags were based on ancient heraldic banners—blue with an ox head (Moldavia) and yellow with an eagle (Walachia). Walachia also chose a naval ensign with horizontal stripes of red, blue, and yellow, colors later selected for the Flag Of Romania.

From 1881 to 1947 the Kingdom of Romania was created under the constitutional monarchy of Carlo I of Romania and ended in 1947 with the abdication of Michael I of Romania. The National Flag Of Romania during this time was a blue-yellow-red vertical tricolor. Various changes were made in the coat of arms on the state flag in 1877, 1897, 1922, and under the communist regime in 1948, 1952, and 1965.

When a revolution overthrew the communists, their emblem was removed from the Flag Of Romania. Once Romania gained independence the reinstated the traditional vertical blue-yellow-red tri-color.
