The European Union flag

It is one of its main symbols. A dark blue flag, in which twelve golden stars form the shape of a circle. It was designed by Arséne Heitz, in order to create a common symbol for countries and organisations. And, against many people’s thought, the number of stars has no relation with the number of state members (like, for example, 51 stars in the American flag). That’s why it hasn’t changed with time. The number twelve was included because of the belief that twelve is a perfect number.
