Wearing our tricolor

It is an honor for us during our National Day to display our flag in every possible way. We even wear it attached to our clothing in a smaller version, put near to our heart. This folk custom symbolizes the love for our country, the patriotism, the Romanian blood running through our veins.

The big flags are also part of the tradition, the display of big tricolor canvases being a “must” during the National Day celebrations. Our National Flag is a tricolor with vertical stripes, beginning from the flagpole: blue, yellow and red, “Liberty (sky-blue), Justice (field yellow), Fraternity (blood red)” as established during the revolution in 1848. This combination of colors remained the symbol of our united Principalities, even before they were truly united, representing the Romanians everywhere
