Customs ensign

[Customs ensign] image by Željko Heimer

Album des Pavillons (2000) shows a flag captioned Customs Ensign. Differences are that it is swallow tailed 1:2, indentation 90 degrees, a lighter blue field (approxim. Pantone 299c), with 14 visible embattlements and 14 gaps, and the indentations touches the white stripe just where the 15th brick would come. Might it be that the swallow tailed version is to be used at sea, while the rectangular for hoisting on land?
Željko Heimer, 24 January 2001

Rectangular flag is for hoisting in ports and customs check points, and dependencies of the customs service. Swallow tailed 1:2 flag is for ships of the customs agencies.

Court of Accounts

[Service for Court of Accounts] image by Vanya Poposki, 15 July 2015

The insignia of the Court of Accounts were approved at the sitting of the National Heraldry Committee under the President of the Republic of Moldova, minutes no. 137-III of 28 June 2006.

The insignia were approved by the Decision of the Court of Accounts nol.44 of 15 June 2006 "On approving the coat of arms, the emblem, the colors of the Court of Accounts and the badge of affiliation with the Court of Accounts". Goal: to distinguish the supreme external financial control body.

All symbols shall have a blue and silver billeted field, a crossed golden eagle, with red beak and talons, in a half-opened fly, wearing on its chest the escutcheon from the State Emblem of the Republic of Moldova (divided horizontally into two parts, red and blue in color, with the head of a golden superimposed aurochs showing an eight-pointed star between its horns, flanked by a rose to its dexter, and a crescent to its sinister, all golden as well) and holding in its dexter talon Mercury's Caduceus made of silver, and in its sinister talon a two-piece tally of the same metal.

Alternating blue and silver glazes we get the balance between the two values of a calculation, the debit and the credit. At the same time, the blue color symbolizes fidelity and perseverance in heraldry. It is the general color of civil institutions identifying with the European civilization and expresses attachment to the western colors. Silver, in turn, stands for purity, immaculacy and correctness in intentions.

The hawk with a the state escutcheon of the Republic of Moldova marks the fact that the state supreme financial control body - the Court of Accounts of Moldova - is a national institution subordinated to the Parliament. This is the hawk from the state emblem, graphically and color altered in order to avoid confusion with the hawk on the official escutcheon. Of the attributes of the state hawk only the cross in the beak was preserved, without which the heraldic bird cannot be identified as such. The hawk of the Court of Accounts is represented in a half-opened fly this way expressing the idea of protection, in this case the protection of public financial resources and public assets.

In the dexter talon the hawk holds Mercury's Caduceus, a scepter representing a stick with two wings on top with two snakes encircling it in opposite directions. Mercury (lat. Mercurius - meaning goods, to trade) was the god of trade in Roman mythology and identified with the Greek god Hermes.

In the sinister talon the hawk holds a tally made of two parts.

In old times, the tally was a tool for keeping records very popular with European ancient people. In Romanian the term is borrowed from the Southern Slave languages (Bulgarian and Serbian-Croatian) and circulated in other variants too. Using a contemporary language, the tally made of two parts stands for a register which shows the inflows and outflows. All European people widely used the tally made of two parts; some of them used it until the 19-th century. For instance, the cuttings used on the tallies for the transfer of payments of the UK State to the Bank of England are known worldwide.

The emblem of the Court of Accounts shall be present on the official seals of the Court of Accounts and its subdivisions, on the letterheads, official documents issued by the Court of Accounts, buildings, offices and other rooms belonging to the Court of Accounts, on the web page of the Court of Accounts, identity cards of the Court of Accounts employees, on diplomas and other decorations awarded by the Court of Accounts etc.
