The flag of the European Union (EU) features a circle of twelve golden (yellow) stars on a blue background, a design adopted on December 8, 1955. The number of stars isn’t related to the number of member states. Instead, it symbolizes unity, solidarity, and harmony among the peoples of Europe.

The blue background color of the flag represents peace, truth, and stability, while the circle signifies unity and completeness. The EU flag serves as a prominent symbol of the European Union and its institutions. It embodies the shared values and aspirations of its member states for cooperation and integration on the continent.
