Carol II

front: crowned shield

The coat of arms of Romania was adopted in the Romanian Parliament on 10 September 1992 as a representative coat of arms for Romania. It is based on the Lesser Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Romania (used between 1922 and 1947) As a central element it shows a golden aquila holding Orthodox Cross in its beak and a mace and a sword in its claws. It also consists of the three colors: red, yellow, and blue, which represent the colors of the national flag. The coat of arms was augmented on 11 July 2016 to add a representation of the Steel Crown of Romania.

The shield surmounting the eagle is divided into five fields, one for each historical province of Romania with its traditional symbol:

golden aquila - Wallachia (Muntenia)
aurochs - Moldavia (Moldova) and Bukovina (Bucovina)
dolphins - Seaside: Bessarabia/Budjak (1867–1878) and Dobruja (after 1878)
a black aquila, seven castles, a sun and a moon - Transylvania (Transilvania), Maramureș and Crișana
lion and Trajan's bridge - Oltenia and the Banat

Traditionally, this eagle appears in the arms of the Argeș county, the town of Pitești and the town of Curtea de Argeș. It stands for the “nest of the Basarabs”, the nucleus around which Wallachia was organised.
