Meaning and origin of the European Union (EU)-Flag:

The European flag consists of a circle of twelve golden mullets on an azure field. It was introduced in Europe in 1955 by the Euro as its flag and adopted in 1986 by the European Community. Today she is best known as the symbol of the European Union. The number of stars, twelve is traditionally the symbol of perfection, completeness and unity. Only by chance she agreed between the adaptation of the flag by the EC between 1986 and 1995 to expand in line with the number of Member States of the EC and therefore remained unchanged afterwards.
