In Romania there are two celebrations regarding veterans:

November 11th - The (Expeditionary/Operation/Abroad Theaters) Veterans Day was established by Law No. 150 of 22.10.2014, for the acknowledgement of the merits of military personnel participating in military actions and providing them and their descendants certain rights. The date was chosen for its double significance: the day the armistice that was signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany to end World War 1 and create the premises of the Great Union in Romania, on December 1, 1918; and because on November 11, 2003, 2nd Lt. (posthumous) Iosif Silviu Fogoraşi, died in the line of duty, the first romanian soldier to lose his life in the theater of operations in Afghanistan.

April 29th – The War Veterans Day was reinstated (first time in 1902 - Carol I of Romania) by Government's Emergency Ordonance No. 1222/2007, for the acknowledgement of the romanian soldiers from The Romanian War of Independence 1877-1878, WWI and WWII.

The symbol for these celebrations is the romanian official national flower known as "Bujorul românesc" (Paeonia peregrina Mill. var. romanica) Razvan Mihaeanu (talk) 00:00, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
