Moldova’s coat of arms consist of a shield divided horizontally into two parts: the upper part is red, and the lower part is blue with a superimposed auroch’s head showing, between its horns an eight-pointed star. On its right the auroch’s head is flanked by a five –petalled rose, and on its left by a slightly rotated crescent. All heraldic elements present on the shield are of golden (yellow) colour. The shield is laid on the breast of a natural eagle holding in its break a golden cross, in its right claw a green olive-tree branch and in its left claw a golden sceptre.

THE STATE ANTHEM OF THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA

verse by Alexei Mateevici, music by Alexandru Cristea

	Limba noastră-i o comoară
	În adîncuri înfundată
	Un şirag de piatră rară
	Pe moşie revărsată.

	Limba noastră-i foc ce arde
	Într-un neam, ce fără veste
	S-a trezit din somn de moarte
	Ca viteazul din poveste.

	Limba noastră-i frunză verde,
	Zbuciumul din codrii veşnici,
	Nistrul lin, ce-n valuri pierde
	Ai luceferilor sfeşnici.

	Limba noastra-i limbă sfîntă,
	Limba vechilor cazanii,
	Care o plîng şi care o cîntă
	Pe la vatra lor ţăranii.

	Răsări-va o comoară
	În adîncuri înfundată,
	Un şirag de piatră rară
	Pe moşie revărsată.
