Flag of Romania
Romania Flag Meaning
The colors are typical of Romania and date back as far as Roman times. When Romania became an independent kingdom, the current tricolor was adopted as the national flag in 1859. A few years later, in 1867, the monarch’s coat of arms was introduced in the middle of the flag but this was then replaced during their communist period in 1948 ?? 1989 to the coat of arms. After the fall of the communist regime, the blue, yellow and red tricolor were reintroduced on December 27, 1989.
The Romanian flag is very similar to the flag of Chad. What distinguishes the flags is that Romania has a slightly lighter shade of blue. Chad has the same shade of blue as the French tricolor.
