State Flag Day in Moldova

State Flag Day in Moldova is a holiday observed on April 27 each year. As the name of this holiday suggests, this day is dedicated to the Moldovan flag—a flag that was adopted on November 6, 1990.

Except for the addition of the coat of arms, this flag is almost identical to the Romanian flag, which reflects the close cultural and national ties the two countries share. This holiday is not a public holiday in Moldova, so schools and businesses operate during normal business hours.
