History of the Andorra Flag
The national flag of the Principality of Andorra was adopted in 1866.
The design is related to France, Spain, Catalonia, and Foix flags, which are historically in connection with the country of Andorra. The flag, consisting of three vertical stripes, resembles the French tri-color flag, while the Spanish flag has a wider midline pattern. The blue and red of the Andorra flag is also found in the French flag. Red and yellow are also the colors of the Catalan flag and the colors of the old Foix County coat of arms.
From 1806 to 1866, the Andorra flag was a vertical two-color yellow and red. The ‘Virtus Unita Fortior’ motto in the middle lanes means “Virtue United is stronger”. The design is similar to the flags of Romania, Moldova and Chad. These are all three-color colors of blue, yellow and red, but unlike the ones of Andorra, all the lines of their flags are of equal width.
