For Romania’s National Day we compiled a series of pictures to show our identity and pride to be Romanians.
The Romanian flag is present in all the pictures, can you spot it? The three colors, vertically arranged are blue, yellow and red and they signify freedom (the blue of the sky), justice (the yellow of the fields) and brotherhood (the red of the blood).
Traditional welcome with bread and salt
We proudly wear & display our flag
We preserve centuries old traditions
We throw big parties and festivals on important occasions.
The national day is one of them. 101 years ago, on 1st of December 1918, Romanian representatives from Transylvania announced the union with what was then a smaller country, leading in the end to the birth of what is known in history as Greater Romania. Since then, things have changed, but our patriotism and love for the country remain the same.
We can be loud
We love the fruits from the grandparents’ garden
Splashing with water, even in winter is for prosperity and fertility
We paint eggs for Easter
We prefer small wooden churches
We like to wear traditional clothes. And they are very different from region to region
Some still organize traditional weddings
We love our medieval towns
We value important figures in our history
We like to crack jokes, often very sarcastic
We love our mountains
Cold and snow don’t stop us from anything
