Presentation of the student Corolyova Vitalina group 123 Berislavs Pedagogical College
The European Union (EU) is a unique economic and political union of 27 member states which are located primarily in Europe. Its capital is de facto Brussels. The European Union was formally established when the Maastricht Treaty into force on 1 November 1993, and in 1995 Austria, Finland and Sweden joined the newly established EU.
1. The flag of Europe. It is the symbol not only of the European Union, but also a symbol of unity of the countries of Europe and its individual basis in a broad sense. A circle of gold stars represents solidarity and harmony between the peoples of Europe.The number of stars is in no way linked with a number of EU member States. The flag depicts the twelve stars, because the number «twelve» is traditionally considered to be a symbol of perfection, completeness and unity. For this reason, the flag remains unchanged regardless of the enlargement of the EU.
In the broadest sense - the anthem not only of the European Union, but also the whole of Europe. The music of the anthem is taken from the Ninth Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven wrote in 1823. In the final part of his symphonies of Beethoven put to the music of «Ode to joy» written in 1785 by Friedrich von Schiller. This verse expressed idealistic views Schiller on brotherly relations between all the representatives of the human race - the views, which were shared by Beethoven. In 1985, the national anthem was approved by the presidents and heads of governments of the EU countries as the official anthem of the European Union. This song is not intended to replace existing national anthems of the countries-members of the EU, rather it is a statement of shared values and their unity in the diversity of national differences.
«Unity in diversity» is the motto of the European Union. The motto means that, due to the PLAYS of the inhabitants of the European countries are United in cooperation for the sake of peace and prosperity, and numerous cultures, traditions and languages of the European States is an invaluable asset of this continent.
