The emblem of Europe: discover the 150 designs that were rejected for the iconic European flag
The European flag, adorned with twelve golden stars against a backdrop of blue, has emerged as one of the most widely recognised symbols of Europe. Since its inception in 1955 by the Council of Europe, it has come to represent the harmonisation of European nation-states. From over 150 flag concepts submitted by a diverse range of individuals, it was the luminous circle of yellow stars that ultimately triumphed.
These vibrant designs, previously unseen, are unveiled in Rejected: Designs for the European Flag. This trilingual book (English, German and French) captures the prevailing spirit of the continent during a crucial phase in the formation of European unity.
