    Default Flag of the Socialist Republic of Romania

    Recently I bought a flag from the "Republica Socialistă Romānia". This flag was the official flag of Romania during the period of 1965-1989.
    Searching for examples on the Internet something struck me about the flag.
    Most Romanian flags from this period are provided with a full colour coat of arms. On my example the coat of arms is printed in just one colour.
    Has this flag been an original low-cost production or is it a modern manufacture meant as a souvenir for the tourists?

    I took the photos of the flag with a wide-angle lens, that is why the proportions of the flag were distorted.
    The flag is made of polyester and it has a size of 148x75 cm. The coat of arms is printed on just one side of the flag.

    I too have never seen one with a monochrome coat of arms, interesting too is the yellow in the centre panel has faded to almost white. I'd say a cheapo tourist item!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Looks like fake flag for sure. As Paul has stated it is some cheap and low quality item.

    Lol, no need to demean the item so badly, suffice it to say it is probably an economical tourist souvenir. Franko sounds like he is describing one of my girlfriends from my youth " cheap and low quality." Just joking

    You are right, it is a cheaply produced polyester flag and possibly fake. The print of the coat of arms already suggested this.
    But it is made of the same kind of polyester as some of my GDR flags.
    I bought these polyester GDR flags in East Germany in 1989/90 and they are 100% GDR made. They are typical cheap Eastern Europe productions of that time and not tourist souvenirs. I even have a GDR flag which was made in Czechoslovakia in the 1980's.
    In other words, a US flag does not have to be made in the USA. The same applies to a Romanian flag.
    But where can this flag come from? Would they, for example, want to sell this flag in souvenir shops in Romania?
    I can always cut a hole in it.
