State Arms of Moldova
The coat of arms of Moldova consists of a stylized eagle holding a cross in its beak and a sceptre and an olive branch in its claws. According to the author[who?] of the coat of arms, the eagle symbolizes the Latin origin of the people. The chest of the eagle is protected by a shield that bears the traditional insigns of Moldavia: an aurochs head with the sun between its horns. It also contains two lozenges (the ears), a five-petal flower and a moon in a crescent phase. Everything on the shield has one of the three traditional colours: red, yellow, blue. The coat of arms appears in the centre of the flag of Moldova.
