Flag of Andorra
The flag of the tiny state of Andorra, located in the mountains between France and Spain, was adopted in 1866. For many years, Andorra was administered by Spain and France under the so-called dual system, which ended only in 1993, when the country became independent and became a modern parliamentary democracy. The flag consists of a vertical tricolor of blue, yellow and red stripes and a coat of arms in the middle of the yellow stripe. One half of the coat of arms points to belonging to Spain, the other to ties to France. The miter and crutches in the upper left quarter of the coat of arms are the emblem of the Spanish bishop, and the two red cows in the lower right are meant to resemble the French province of Bearn.
The small principality of Andorra lies between France and Spain in the Eastern Pyrenees. See Andorra Location on World Map. French and Spanish co-princes have ruled together since the 15th century. Because of the beautiful landscape, the mountain climate and the duty-free shopping, tourism is the most important source of income, especially in winter.
