By article 50 of the Law no. 218 of 23.04.2002, the 25th of March has been designated the Romanian Police Day.
The choice of this date is related to the Christian symbol of the Annunciation. The choice of this date is related to the Christian symbol of the Annunciation, firstly depicted on the flag of the Great Agia, a symbol that is also present on the current flag of the Romanian Police.
In 1822, ruler Lord Grigore Dimitrie Ghica had handed to the Great Aga Mihăiță Filipescu (the police chief of that time) the flag on which the sigil of the Agia Flag was sown. Next to the sigil a golden garland was placed, inside it being shown the image of Virgin Mary encountering the angel who brings her the good announcement (The Annunciation).
