The Republic of Moldova's national flag is a vertical tricolor of blue, yellow, and red bands, with the national coat of arms of Moldova, which depicts an eagle holding a shield with an aurochs, placed in the center of the yellow band. The flag has a 1:2 ratio and can be used as a civic, state, or war flag and ensign. The flag's reverse is a mirror version of the front.
The Moldovan flag's blue-yellow-red color pattern is based on the Romanian flag, reflecting the two countries' national and cultural affinities. Moldova's flag has a yellow stripe with the national arms, which were approved in 1990. The arms resemble the Romanian coat of arms, which depicts a dark golden eagle with an Orthodox Christian cross in its beak.
Instead of a sword, the eagle wields an olive branch, which represents peace. The blue and crimson shield on the eagle's chest depicts traditional Moldovan emblems such as an aurochs' head, a rose, a crescent, and a star, all in gold. Moldova's national flag is based on vertical stripes of blue, yellow, and red, as are the flags of Chad and Andorra.
