The Flag

Silviu Andrieş-Tabac, "Introducere īn heraldică. Noţiuni generale şi īntregiri la armorialul teritorial romānesc" (Introduction to heraldry. General concepts and completions to the Romanian territorial armorial), Editura Universităţii din Bucureşti, Bucureşti, 2008, ISBN 978-973-737-443-1, reported that between 1998 and 2003 the territory of the Republic of Moldova was divided into 9, then 10 counties ("judeţ"), apart from the capital, Chisinau, and 2 autonomous units (Gagauzia and Transdnistria).

The National Commission of Heraldry of RM elaborated the coat of arms (2000) and flags (2001) of these counties. The flags were conceived as to display the main colors and charges of their respective coat of arms. The proportion of all the fields is 1:2, as in the state flag.

Bălţi county, capital Bălţi, used a flag divided per pale: red hoist, with a white horse head in the center looking toward the hoist; white fly. The horse head is the old emblem of the county.
