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).

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.
