30th Anniversary of the Flag of the European Union
The designs show the EU flag as a symbol that unites people and cultures with shared visions and ideals for a better common future. Twelve stars that morph into human figures are embracing the birth of a new Europe. At the top right, in semi-circle, are the issuing country and the years ‘1985-2015’. At the bottom right are the initials of the artist (Georgios Stamatopoulos). The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
Engraver: Georgios Stamatopoulos
A map, next to the face value, shows the European continent without borders.

The European flag was officially established in 1985, by decision of the leaders of the ten Member States of the
then EEC, based on a design adopted by another European organisation, the Council of Europe, for its own use. The flag consists of twelve golden stars in a circle on a blue background. The stars symbolise the ideals of solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe, while the circle is a symbol of unity. The number of stars does not denote the number of member countries, but the number twelve traditionally represents a perfect circle.
The coin was issued in bankrolls, in Proof quality in box with certificate of authenticity and in BU quality on a coincard blister.
