History

The flag of Andorra was officially adopted on August 27, 1866, but the current design, with the coat of arms, was finalized on July 25, 1993, following the constitution that made Andorra a parliamentary democracy. The flag's colors are influenced by those of France and Spain, the two countries that have historically co-principality over Andorra. The addition of the national coat of arms in the center of the flag is a symbol of Andorra's sovereignty and independence. Over the years, the flag has come to represent the country's unique cultural heritage, nestled in the Pyrenees mountains between its two larger neighbors.
