Romania National Flag Day celebration !

The Romanian National Flag Day, June 26th,  has been celebrated since 1998, when the Romanian lawmakers adopted a law introducing it. Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said “Let’s respectfully honor those who made possible the Unification of the Principalities in 1859, those who sacrificed themselves in the War of Independence, in the First and Second World Wars.” The national flag of Romania is a blue, yellow and red tricolor, with the colors being arranged in vertical stripes of equal size. The colors are arranged vertically in the following order from the flagpole: blue, yellow, and red. The blue, yellow and red tricolor was first adopted in Wallachia in 1834, but not as a national symbol, but as a flag of merchant ships and native militia units. The stripes were arranged horizontally, with the red stripe at the top and the blue at the bottom. In the revolutionary context, the Romanian revolutionaries flew the blue, yellow and red flag in 1848, with vertical stripes. The tricolor became the national flag in 1859, but with the colors arranged horizontally. The blue color was on top until 1862. In 1867, both the national and military flags were changed to the vertical arrangement, with the colors in the following order: blue hoist, yellow, and red. The flag has gone through several changes over time, especially related to the coat of arms. The plain tricolor was reestablished once the Communist era ended.
