Uisage[eedit | eedit soorce]

For govrenment uisage, anerlie the state banner is valid. But Transnistrian law permits the uise a simplified version o the banner for non-govrenmental uise (i.e., personal an commercial uisage), athoot hammer an sickle an red starn, an athoot regard tae shape or size. The maist common size is still 1:2, but 2:3 versions hae been uised an aa.
