By adding this blue stripe, both France and Spain are represented with two colours in the Andorran flag – blue and red for France, red and yellow for Spain.
Andorra flag information
There is a version of the state flag that is the same design except it does not bare the coat of arms. In Andorra it is used just as often as the state flag, as there is no legislation regarding the flag.
The coat of arms used on the Andorran flag is traditionally made up of four quarters. The four quarters are:
Top-left - the one of the Bishopric
Top-right – the one of Catalonia
Bottom-left – the one of Foix
Bottom-right – the one of Bearn
