Category:Flag of Europe
flag of Europe at large created by the Council of Europe, then adopted as one of the official symbols of the European Communities and later of the European Union
|Instance of|| symbols of Europe,|
|Applies to jurisdiction||Europe|
This flag (rectangular and blue with twelve yellow five-pointed stars forming a circle) is simply and officially named “flag of Europe” or “European flag”, and not “flag of the European Union” (which is too restrictive, as the European Union does not have his own flag). The number of stars (12) is also not associated to the number of member states in any past or present European organization.
The European Union (like also the former European Communities) actually uses under permission, as one of its own official emblems, the official and flag of the Council of Europe, which originally designed it for display throughout Europe (at large, including in European countries that are not members of the Council of Europe), years before the European Communities were created.
This flag can be legally used in every European country that are members of the Council of Europe (this is the case of all members of the European Union, or of the European Economic Area, as well as members of the Community of Independant States and of most other European organizations), or that have been invited to join it, and in any other internationals event where citizens or residents of these European countries are meeting, including in places outside Europe.
