Decision No. 4,080, 29 September 2015

Azure represents the sky and supreme freedom of the expression of the people's electoral will.
The cruciferous eagle charged with the state coat of arms recalls that the CEC is a central-level institution of the Republic of Moldova. The eagle from the state coat of arms was modified in its design and color to prevent any confusion with the state arms. The cross in the beak was preserved for the sake of identification. The eagle with half-spread wings represents protection of the election's legality. The balls represent one of the world's oldest voting system, white for the pro vote, black for the con.
