A new symbol for Europe

These are the 1400+ proposals we received for ‘A new symbol for Europe’.
An international jury selected twelve symbols, which were printed on flags and exhibited on various locations.

Europe – a continent develops
Alexander Lohse, Germany
➜ open to new partners ➜ up-and-coming and aimed at development ➜ dynamical and not forced in regulations
EU_flag_C.eps
Mirjam Herrebrugh, The Netherlands
The half circle, symbol of susceptibility, openess, concentration and reference to the eternal life. A white background being the color of purity, cleanness and surrender. In this design 4 half circles with 2 different thicknesses put together forming a flower. It shows strength, growth and softness, in spite of, maybe because of, the imperfection. Although not symmetrical, the flower gives a strong feeling of unity.
Many Stars
Six Pound Fish, Poland
The project corresponds strongly with official EU logo - the change is a larger number of stars - some bigger, some smaller. This represents many countries that are part of the Union - as mentioned earlier some bigger some smaller but all of the same importance.
European Star
The European Star is composed by several worlds that together form a star, referring to the current European Flag with the same basic form (in "reverse" order) and colours. The shining worlds represent the multiple cultures that forms the European identity, as a shining star illuminating a dark-blue sky.
Big star
Jani Bavcer, Slovenia
The group of stars united in one big star. M= 1:10
UNITED COLORS OF EUROPE
YEHONATAN HADANY, ISRAEL
MY DESIGN IS A CLOSED RING MADE OF OF EIGHT COLORS INTERWOVEN INTO EACH OTHER.THE RING,A SYMBOL OF STRONG UNITY.THE EIGHT COLORS REPRESENTS THE COLORS OF ALL EUROPEAN FLAGS.INTERWOVEN TOGETHER AS SYMBOL FOR THE DIFFETENT CULTURS AND ORIGIONS FROM WHICH THE EUROPEAN POPULATION IS MADE OF.THE RING SYMBOLAZES ALL THE EUROPEAN CONTRIES AND CULTURS UNIFIDE TOGETHER.
Flag two
Raj, India
In this design, used multiple colors ie., 23 colors representing official languages and 50 stars representing the countries of EU. Blue is the color of distance - oceans, skies, the heavens. The energy of blue helps us to look beyond the immediate environment, expanding our perceptions towards the unknown
Monochrome
Julie Pliszczak, France
This flag shows the mixture and union of countries of the European Union. The rectangles are different sizes to show the different stages of different states of the Union. The bright colors show a vibrant community.
Equal Flag
Alejandro González Marrero, Spain
“Liberty, equality, fraternity”, the old French Revolution motto seems to be the natural wish of present european citizens. Letter ‘E’ from Europe is also a doubled equal sign. Blue and yellow are the most recognized sign for the European Comunity. Three bands flag style is also referenced here without national colors distinction. A sign that could be made by everybody with a three fingers gesture.
Jake Nankin
Jake Nankin, United States of America
While designing this flag,it was neccesary to keep the old design while putting an original new design at the same time. It was important to keep the idea of a circle and stars, but in order to make it different there is half a circle of stars and half in a line. The big star in the middle represents the EU in whole.
EU COHERENCE
Edi Winarni, Deutschland
Coherence is the most important thing for the countries of EU. This is what i try to visualize with the rings building a strong chain, referring to the present flag of EU.
European United
Hugo van Woerden, The Netherlands
The thinking about Europe tends to focus on differences. Each country needs its own signifier, making things more complicated because the EU is not a fixed entity, but one that keeps growing and changing. This leads inevitably to compromises in the representation of the cultural identity. Instead, we should think about similarities and look for a shared common denominator: all Europeans love football.
Progression, Unity & Equality
Kerry Gissing, United Kingdom
The forward facing arrows represent progression. Each arrow is touching at least one other to represent unity, all the arrows are the same size to show equality. The colours of the arrows has been taken from the most predominant of the countries flags already in the European Union. The golden yellow background has been taken from the original flag to add an element of association.The forward facing arrows represent progression. Each arrow is touching at least one other to represent unity, all the arrows are the same size to show equality. The colours of the arrows has been taken from the most predominant of the countries flags already in the European Union. The golden yellow background has been taken from the original flag to add an element of association.
ONE FOR ALL
Maja Gspan, Slovenia
Only one yellow star on the blue field stands for: ONE FOR ALL (...and ALL FOR ONE), no matter which and how many of us are the parts of EU. Outline represents the chain of mambers.
Chequered
Declan Stone, The Netherlands
A multicolored flag representing Europe's diversity in culture, language and tradition. Distinctive, dynamic, modern and friendly.
Eu
Gabriels Tessa, Belgium
In my draft I have the Eu gbruikt Europe. I have one of the Eu abstrackte geometry. But I have still retained the Eu she had to remain recognizable.
RW2802EU.ai
Rainer Woertmann, Germany
EU is a symbol for united Europe, so putting the two characters in a very simple way in one, looks to me like the basic european idea: bring the people together
star for stars
Vladimir Buzolić-Stegu, Croatia
Golden Star is a symbol of Europe while the blue Star symbolizes the diversity* within Europe. Golden Star is a symbol of single State in EU while the blue Star symbolizes the diversity* within State. Diversity* read as: diversity in cultures, languages, traditions and believes!
Intertwining Ring Gold and White
Jennifer Cogan, Italy
Strength. History. Heritage. Honor. Tradition. This design encompasses these essential attributes of the European Union. The continuous, universal ring, intertwining infinitely in 3-dimensions, represents the connection between the past and future, the history that connects the European nations to one another, the heritage of the original member nations, and the inclusion of new nations in the future, while honoring the legacy of the original design.
purity and potential
Marnix de Klerk, the Netherlands
In fact this is not quite a new symbol for Europe. It’s merely an improved version of the excisting identity. It’s a symbol, which expresses the past, the present and the future. It’s purity and potential. The new symbol implies the innumerable different levels of lingustic, cultural and economic varieties of contemporary Europe morphing into an eclectic celebration.
golden symbol
Imly Links, Netherlands
I choose the colour blue for the background, which is already recognizable for the E.U. The symbol in the middle comes from the Euro. On the 1 Euro coin you see 12 lines and stars. The golden circle is not only round as the coin, but also stands for equality The two big stars stand for solidarity and harmony.
Page-turner
This design is a reference to "turning a new leaf" in a book. The lower right corner of the blue flag seems to be folding inwards to reveal the white page underneath: the EU's future thus appears as a "blank page" waiting to be written. The swirl that defines the edge of the "page" is in the shape of an inverted "e" (for Europe). The inversion is supposed to incite the viewer to think about the importance of looking backwards in order to shape the future. This is emphasized by the 6 stars (6 founding nations).
Bacherlor of Arts in Media Design
This version shows a dynamic curve (europe) consisting of single elements (people) with different colours and sizes that should reflect the single characters, ways of life, cultures. That there is no end of the spotted band should show that there is no end of the dynamic that is given europe by the people.
EQUALITY
Dino Brucelas, Philippines
The stars are removed from the blue field of the existing EU map, to emphasize unity and total equality.
Tag of Europe
Lyske van der Brug, Nederland
For this tag of Europe, I am inspired by ranks of the police, fire-brigade, army and so on. The tag (my flag) is a translation of the power of Europe: more than one stripe and a arrow. The arrow in the tag is a translation of prosperity, now and in the future.
.eu
hoi-yin ip, nl
a variation of the same theme. the country's extension and identity colour changes with each country e.g. .sk .cz .nl .uk .es .de
Birds
Claudia Brown, German-Dutch
Migrating birds are a common phenomenon all over Europe. They don’t know borders and symbolize free exchange as well as equal access to resources. Birds cover great distances and always find there way back home. Each birds individual journey is made possible by a massive collective achievement. The symbol implies vision, movement, order and solidarity.
Circle of the infinities
Nova Soviningrat, Indonesia
The interpretative of this logo sets the form of the combination between infinity symbol that formed the star in the middle. Infinity itself means represent perfection, unity, and the balance of power from diversity in European Union countries. Whereas the nature of the stars are shining celestial bodies that come from a nuclear reactor in it. These atoms represent the countries that joined the European Union association to spread energy and make it emit light energy to the surrounding areas as well. LOGO PERSONALITIES: - Dynamic - connection - networking - cooperation
Union of colors
PAPADAKI DIMITRA, GREECE
The green flag represents world's Environmental issues and our goal to save the Environment. The circle represents Union of different nations featured by their human color.
something old, something new
Astrid Rhijn, van, The Netherlands
This flag is based on the colors of the flags of all the countries of the 27 member countries of the EU and the current flag.
A new symbol for Europe
Young-Il Seo, South Korea
the cosmos, hot~cold, multiplication
Connected by one
Sander van Mil, Netherlands
The old flag is easy to recognise. So the idea is to add a circle and a big star. The circle is symbol of unity, and the big star represents the european union as an umbrella body.
Diff
Waleed A.kawi Saleh, Yemen
Combined of a four colored lines shape as a meaning of wider horizons going in the same direction of development and success. Also colors here are chosen as a meaning of different cultures and to be unique.
bandiera europea
Zanasi Lorenzo, Italy
The flag means a black eye in there 27 stars, the peace colors and the map of the Europe.
We're different and we're equal, together we are one
Lindi-Ellen Boomsma, Netherlands
I compared all the European flags. Conclusion: 6 different colors, horizontal stripes were most common and the old flag had stars. I combined these three aspects and created a new flag. I tried different orders of colors, this one was, in my opinion, the best, because of its division of dark and light colors.
the gold thread
I dream of a Europe as a gold thread that is rolled on a center many times as the number of UE States . A thread that is overlapping and tying in freedom but always a single wire around a single center of gravity, with a beginning in the middle that recalls the origin of EU and a outer end ready to be continued by other states. Symbolically, each President of the new country entering the European Union should mark by his hand a new circle on the flag, as an extension of the wire already made in sixty years of history.
One
Katrina Robinson, United States
With this design, I wanted to portray how each color makes the world complete. They are in a circle like the original stars yet this time,represent equality. No color is before another. They are all needed to complete the circle. The big star in the center pulls the picture together by portraying the beauty that working together brings.
Twilight Bliss
Madeline Gimbel, United States
The flag incorporates the same colors as the previous European Union flag so it’s still recognizable as the European Union. Twelve stars represent perfection. The circle shows how the unity of the European countries. The stars are located on the right side to balance the weight of the flagpole. Symbolizing the possibility of more countries joining the European Union, the stars form a half circle.
Blooming EU
Ji Ye Ha, South Korea
With the establishment and growth of the European Union, the diversity and versatility of EU nations is together creating a harmony that blooms the European continent and the whole world. Each leaflet of the flower is represented by a contour map of EU nations. The URL for the original contour map I used for the design is: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/75/European_Union_enlargement.gif
Hands
Bart Stroes, Netherlands
The symbol consists of two times the “E” from “Europe”, rotated and overlapping. As two hands, they enclose the countries (cyan squares): a diversity of people, places, cultures, politics, traditions, languages. Not in a rigid way, but flexible and adabtable. The hands can open up and welcome new countries, new people, new ideas... Or say goodbye to countries that by their individual choice wish to part ways. The hands may also come closer together as the number of shared ambitions and goals grows, or when challenges in the world ask for a unified answer. Colors are still “blue” and “yellow”. The sky and the sun. A bright future...
European union
Gaetana De Francesco, Belgium
for my design I used the star that stands for perfection, and inegrety union. I chose the traditional blue for the continued recognition of the flag. the star that I've connected to the E of Europe represents the unity and equality among the different countries.
Modes Flag
I have wanted to represent the different social layers, the different ones countries, different breeds, different nationalities that live in Europe. The above-mentioned wrapped by a circumference that represents unit and at the same time a sun. All are low the same sun, cheerful and positive colors. I believe that is a very modern image, intuitive and implementable.
Diversity United Nr.1
Gaby van Ineveld, The Netherlands
European Identity is not a forced upon identity. European Identity emerges from the diversity of cultures, languages, believes and traditions of joining nations and their colorful populations. Together we are crossing bridges, looking beyond borders, being innovative and economically strong. Melting together in all our joyful diversity. That’s Europe. That’s our Identity.
Dynamic Lines
Erik-Anton van Dun, The Netherlands
By means of dynamically placed lines the diversity of the numerous cultural backgrounds within Europe are portrayed. The lines also portray the movement that constantly takes place in Europe. Development and cooperation on one hand and expansion on the other hand. The colors create recognition with individual national colors.
EU CIRCLES UNION SPECTRUM
Alex Pertsinidis, Greece
Six which according to the Pythagoreans number six is the first perfect number. The similar size of all circles symbolize unity. The circles cover each other with a centrifuged direction according to the analogy of Golden Ration. The cover of circles symbolizes interaction, unity and solidarity. The identical size of the circles and uniform spatial order interprets the equality. The sequence of the colors in the circlesis achieved according to the color spectrum of light which is finally integrated into a circle. The color spectrum symbolize the diversity in cultures, languages, traditions and believes and the continuity and integration into a circle, the interaction, solidarity and the union of Europe. The intense and bright colors interprets health and liveness. The letters EU show the identity and history of Europe where culture and writing is born and still exists in history. The dimension of EU are designed according to the analogy of Golden Ratio and its important historic, aesthetical and natural base. The white symbolizes harmony, perfection, truth, spirituality, unity and the fusion of colors to a creation of united European Identity.
Golden shell
Dobrila Delonga Momić, Croatia
A five pointed star symbolize features of humanity. Actually, this is Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. I spread this stars in the pattern of golden spiral of nautilus shells. This is Fibonacci spiral based on Fibonacci sequence comes to Golden ratio. The golden ratio appearing in art, architecture, sculpture, anatomy, etc. EU should grow and develop in perfect harmony, like divine proportion.
Circled Flag
Marlene Voves, Germany
My flag shows how Europe is the center of the world and how the five continents seem to overlap and unit in Europe. Furthermore my flag highlights that the European Union units Europe and is a open-minded community.
new symbol
Astrid Rhijn, van, The Netherlands
I used the 12 stars of the current flag to create a new symbol for Europe because the succes of the EU is based on the old ideals: peace, sharing and working together. I placed the stars on a globe because of the current worldwide economic interdependenties and globalization.
Unity
Julie Pliszczak, France
This flag highlights the dynamism of the European Union through its lines. Whether more or less thick, they show that each state is more or less strong. But it is a union between each state that the EU is taking shape. Each of the states help each other which allows a real cohesion which manifests itself through the lines that intersect at some point.
The human one is infinite
It is a symbol close to the mathematical symbol which expresses the infinite one. Through the reciprocity of the forms, this one indicates human permanence, a form of agreement and tight hands.
Index of Communal Unity
Ercument Sabri Ozcakir, Turkey
A community of communities draws an prosperous index line of power, dignity, wealth, and unity.
Freedom
Alina, Russia
I just asked myself:" What is the Europe Union? In my mind..." I think, it is a place, there people from different countries,people of different culturies,people with different colours of skin can live together, having same rights. Place of peace and freedom. Becouse of that i took three white pigeons, flying in the blue sky.
Synergy
Paul Tuinman, The Netherlands
A simple, yet recognizable flag existing of the four pillars that represent the European Union. Unity, Protection, Transparency and Equality. Equality is represented in the optical illusion where the stars seem unaligned but in fact are. We are all equal... The Shield represents both Protection and Transparancy, the Stars represent Unity and the big circle obviously represents our planet.
out of balance
Robin Bremer, The Netherlands
Europe is a continent that exists of different countries with their own culture, traditions, rules and laws. For the countries their own culture is very valuable and that’s why the different countries collide within the European Union. Europe on the other hand stands for a perfect unity that has a strong influence in the world. My flag embodies the contrast between unity and personal interests.
Eye of the Europe-02
Katarina Laus, Croatia
Yellow star on the blue background was left as an symbol already familiar to the europeans and others. Star in the eye that looks to the future europe made from different people with the same idea. Here are variations with classic star and another handrawned which is more humain.
EU LOGO
NIVIN AL KUZBARI, ITALY
THE BIG CIRCLE REPRESENTS THE EUROPEAN UNION , SMALLER CIRCLES REPRESENTS THE CITIES THAT ARE ALREADY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE SMALLER CIRCLES ARE THE CITIES THAT WILL JOIN THE UNION
OUROBOROS
Dragan TRAJKOVSKI, Serbia
The new symbol for Europe should contain the clear visual-associative link with the existing symbol because many good changes in Europe occurred under that flag. The existing symbol is part of the collective memory, and I have redesigned it through the one even older symbol Ouroboros (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros) which represents constant recreation and self-reflexivity.
Diplomgrafikdesigner
Gerhard Medoch, Deutschland
The five triangles are evolving from those under each of the five points of the stars. And those are pointing to several directions and at the time are symbolising the five continents the E.U. is maintaining political and economical relations with. The triangles have been arranged in ascending order (of success).
Immersion
This flag was built around the number 7, as it represents « a change after an accomplished cycle and a positive change ». Hence, we can say it fits Europe whose will is to unify european countries and to create a new dynamic. Seven yellow horizontal bars are centered, immersed in the deep blue of the flag. Europe at the center of its new relations.
Connect
Melanie Mitchell, United Kingdom
The inter-locking symbol represents the unity of the European countries. The dots represent heads of nations working together. The symbol also forms an abstract ‘e’ and ‘u’ for European Union.
v-formation
Szymon Kwiatkowski, Poland
The countries of the present-day Europe are like a V-formation of birds. Individually they are independent and autonomous; however, together they form a unity, pursue the same goals and follow in the same direction.v The design captures the spirit of the modern Europe. The sign is ultracultural and devoid of the reference to the previous religious and national symbols.
symbol_for_E_3v4
Artur Demianiuk, Poland
new symbol for Europe
EU Flag III
Selcuk Askin, Turkey/Australia
Background colour represent Europe as continent. Dot in the centre symbolises the unity of the peoples of the continent. Hands like forms embraces this unity from all over.
Eurostar
Marlous Bervoets, Netherlands
Euro star The current European flag with its color and shape has clearly gained its own identity and reputation. Europe is almost indistinguishable with yellow and blue. The circle of stars is a static but closed form. Over the last decennia, the European Union has grown and will possibly be growing in the future. The change that Europe has undergone since the advent of the current form will be visible in this new flag. The unification of the twelve stars that represented europe up till now, is reflected in the form of one star with twelve points.It symbolizes the vastness of our united Europe, twelve arms reaching out into the rest of the world.
DIRECTOR
STELLA LUCIC, CROATIA
My vision of new symbol for Europa,is The swirl of life(countries).Round but not the same shape,as the countries of EU are not the same with their languages,culture and people.
interconnected
Krizia Jerilee J. Lucero, Philippines
My design is entitled, "Interconected". To maintain the "essence" of the original flag, the 12 stars were maintained. Vertical and horizontal overlapping lines were then integrated to the flag symbolizing the interconnection of different peoples living in Europe. I believe that their existence, experiences and identities as person and as countries makes Europe, Europe.
PEACEmarch
Kwac, js, South Korea
It is for the Europe's desire for peace to create movements that will bring forth changes and developments in European societies.
EU_Logo_Bridge
Europe is for a long time not an 19th Century Europe! In order to embed successfully the EU Emanation in adequate imagery, it is of particular importance first to define the new realities of the System – for today and for the future. The most important and structure determined features of the EU are: - Extraordinary dynamic in all spheres of the Community - Development Open System - new members, new priorities, new challenges - A huge building in all aspects of Community correlations – social, economical, cultural, legally etc. - Loading of energy on the part of different Communities for building an integrative EU valuable system. The Logo we propose retains the blue rectangle of the old one – as a symbol of consistency, extension, traditions. This would help the new logo to continue the EU identification culture. The key role of the European Union as a complex structure of individuals, centrifugal forces, traditions and innovative trends, different economical, cultural and religious states we interpret as a BRIDGE. Bridge, which has beginning, but get’s out of the space and leads to highly visible future. To build a bridge is a hard work! Bridge over the prejudices, national, economical, religious and other conflicts. Bridge, which incorporate in its construction the constructive and creative power of nations for better and united future. The composition is active and move forward and upwards, it has a beginning, but no end. The stars retain from the old symbol, as we grant them dynamic and impetus. These are the particular countries in the Community and every one of them is responsible for the strength of the combined construction. In that way the institutional flare of the new symbol is reserved, but with a new content provided, adequate to the up-to-date realities and EU responsibilities!
EU Sphere
Rachel Graham, United States
Using the original flag colors, I've transformed the design into a modern representation of community. Using yellow to represent members of the EU and white to represent the rest of the world. The EU coincides with the rest of the world and forms a unifying sphere.
changE
Youngha Park, South Korea
As the Council of Europe emphasizes it in their logo, the initial letter 'E' has been regarded as a new symbol of European Union. It shows the change of shape from the original twelve-star halo of the Virgin Mary to the representative letter 'E'. I flipped the two colors from the current flag for the big change/twist of the European Union.
Zoom
The colours represent people and the future. The shape signifies looking forward and momentum. The 12 lines is a nod at multiplicity, clearly not a number of states.
"Eureka"
Johan D. Bosman, The Netherlands
Three yellow horizontal bars: a perfect number performed by bars similar to the pair of the Eurosymbol.Each with a different length. The background in blue: referring to the Atlantic Ocean, the East- and North Sea and the Mediterranian. Colours: Blue: C 99; M 78; Y 0; K 0. Yellow: C 2; M 11; Y 88; K 0. It's preferred to keep the colours blue and yellow. Than people have a referrence.
Under a lucky star
Bourdier, France
This flag represents diversity, sharing, exchange and openness. It shows that by joining forces, everything becomes possible.
Together in Unity
Nelson Pinontoan, Singapore
4 Stars represents Sovereign States, Nonsovereign territories & regions, Partially recognised republics, territories & regions, Unrecognised republics. territories & regions. They are hand in hand under solid circle (represent round Euro), unity of the different cultures, languages & history.
Cohesion
Ammna Chaudhry, United Kingdom
The bonding together of members of an organization/unit in such a way as to sustain their will and commitment to each other, their unit, and the mission (William Henderson, 1985). The Symbol of the waves represents the Free-Flow of the EU - freedom, pride and understanding. The horizon rising with the stars shows the commitment and the liberty of the EU to the European Nations.
E is for Europe
Arthur Wigbout, Hippolytushoef, The Netherlands
A recognizable design, also on a large distance. The flag is blue (PMS reflex blue) and the yellow lines makes the international character E visible (PMS 123), even on elongated banners. The 7 stars stands for luck and are always up (proud stars).
Owner
Kurt Niedermeier, USA
New Europe Logo...
Linked
Claire Ferguson, United Kingdom
Using circles as a symbol of unity, Linked focuses on the idea of individuals who are connected and unified together, emulating the structure of the EU and encompassing the whole world. The outer circle represents the world, which each EU circle is anchored and linked to. Over-lapping creates communal channels for communication and flow. The gold circle represents wealth in a cultural and economical vein.
* EU STAR
1 star with the colours of the european flags. the flag symbolises the melting pot that europe is. the focus is the centre of the star. integration is each nation's responsibility. the colours represent unity and diversity of the european union and it's member states. the composition is like a kaleidoscope - always in motion. LIFE - PROGRESS - TOLERANCE

Eunity
Jop Quirindongo, The Netherlands
See attched PDF file for expanation
river of stars
The design follows as an evolution from the present Eu flag where the stars as a river flow through the circle of unity . Just like the river assimilates everything in its flow the idea of europe has to emerge and evolve from the awareness of a common shared destiny
The European Star
Jan Roth, UK
The European Star symbolizes a consequent continuation of the European ideas and symbols, An overall circular shape is the symbol for the ideal of completeness. Its golden colour against the blue sky, stands for the European people. The two woven stars reflect the peaceful unity, but also the process of forming and living the union. Through this, diverse cultural individuality and influences.
Union
Sarah Amico, Belgium
The signification of this flag is a group of united persons. Each point represents one person and the different colours symbolize diversity in european cultures. The colours who compose this flag come from all the european national flags. The ring is also important because it is a sign of alliance and community. The white background, represents a new start (as a blank page).
Origin, hug between brothers.
The origin, the mother, the individual and the hug between brothers.
Euro Currency
Annette agathine, Seychelles
Represents their identity, independency, language legislation that shows a great force for union
MGUNITY4
Marco Grieco, Portugal
DIVERSITY is the main message of this flag. The small gray dots represent the 27 European countries. On the right side, the idea is to represent the 27 flags in a simple way, showing their interaction and plurality.
Color blind
Slaven Božić, Croatia
The idea is to represent Europe as it is, place where all have same chances regardless of their skin color and everybody is considered a citizen.
european exchange
Marleen Janssens, the Netherlands
European Union? European Exchange of knowledge, ideas, goods and cultures.
Live Europe.
Bob Jones, England
The success and diversity of the European Union rests on the ability to communicate in an informed and diplomatic manner. This emblem of 5 circles represents the 5 senses. Its through these senses every person in Europe can enjoy and be part of the international community and have an influential opinion.
Unity
Kyle Rapaport, United States of America
This flag represents how everything is connected in Europe. There are all different kinds of people, but that all seem to connect in a special way. When everybody is joined together, Europe will be the happiest continent in the world. The light blue and the dark red show that even when Europe is in dark times, the good parts will stand out.
Exchangenet
Daniel Effi, Brazil (living in Italy)
My proposal is a flag that represents the mixture where Europe, today, is a centre. The backgroud blue should be the "work field", the stage, i.e., the Europe itself. The lines should be the cultural, migrational and every influence that goes and comes out or inside Europe and find and cross other ones, so creating other new cultures, that's the "New" Europe (the same colour). Different kind of yellows should represent tha nations (they are different but, basically, people are people).
Europe: Illuminate!
David Chaboissier, Berlin, Germany
Text in the Pdf-File. Regards
Euro DNA
steve hunt, united kingdom
DNA is the very basic fundamental that connects every single person within Europe. This design uses an abstracted illustration of DNA to depict that the individual diversity and culture within the community are closely bound by a basic geneology.
Beautiful Europe
The creation myth of beautiful Europa. Zeus metamorphosed as a white bull get the confidence of the princess. When she sits on his back, he kidnapped her across the sea. This reference symbolises the commitment to common roots (Greek culture as cradle of democracy) and values like human rights and democracy. The bull symbolises also Power and Stability, the Sun (=Europa) the light of human mind.
European unity 2
Tim Holmes, England
This design demonstrates a common base on which european principles are based. This foundation is then extended worldwide.
A New Dawn
Tim Blom, Netherlands
I revamped the flag of the European Union rather than creating a new one as I still wanted it to be easily recognizable as such by everyone. I borrowed the original colours and melted the twelve stars together to form one 27-pointed - one for each member state - star or sun, representing the EU's unity. On one side the star forms an arrow, representing the protection and strength the union has to offer.
Not against Not-Europe
David Chaboissier, Berlin, Germany
Dark blue for non eu-countrie. Alle these countries, EU or not: are in Europe, they communicate directly or indirectly with each other.
bandiera europea
Bernardi Loris, Italy
The colors of Europe with stars
