What is "Europe"? Where is Europe? Who is a European? What does it mean to be a European?
We live in a Europe of many different people, with different opinions and different identities. This is Europe's great strength; its Unity in Diversity. To better reflect these differences and similarities, this project aims to engage EU citizens with creating new symbols that show what "Europe" is.
The original designs were chosen by politicians, in an age when the internet was still relatively new and when "Europe" was mostly Western nations. The world has changed since then. The EU has grown much larger, the EU faces new opportunities and new challenges, and the rapid expansion of the internet allows much greater interaction between European citizens and European governments. The#YourEurope project is the first initiative to get EU citizens involved in changing the symbols of the EU's currency, to better reflect what it means to be a "European" today.
It's your Europe. Have your say.
