Pretty amazing. Mine is a bit better because it uses a more pleasant shade of green and is of a better proportion, 3:5, and is simpler.</p> <p><a href="http://www.4newamerica.com/?p=137" class='spip_url spip_out auto' rel='nofollow external'>http://www.4newamerica.com/?p=137</a></p> <p>Direct link :</p> <p><a href="http://www.4newamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/europe_flag.gif" class='spip_url spip_out auto' rel='nofollow external'>http://www.4newamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/europe_flag.gif</a></p> The Federalist Flag, the Battle-Flag for Europe 2009-03-22T17:27:15Z https://www.thenewfederalist.eu/The-Federalist-Flag-the-Battle-Flag-for-Europe#comment6470 2009-03-22T17:27:15Z <p>There is a very interesting chronology about the process of finding a flag for Europe on the CoE homepage (see below). As far as I know the mojority of CoE member states did favour the flag of the Paneuropean Union (dating back to 1923) but it was rejected by Turkey since it contains a red cross in the middle. The design that was proposed by Arsene Heitz, which was later accepted with a reduced number of stars, was allegedly inspired by a public contest organized by the Europa-Union Hamburg in 1951. But the originally proposed 15 stars (representing the number of members at that time) were rejected by Western Germany at that time since the former autonomous region the Saarland would have represented one star and thus representing some sort of sovereinigty. So it was agreed on having 12 stars !!!</p>
