The results of the European Parliament election has led to calls from some EU member states to rethink the way in which the community is seen.
Reacting decisively to Sunday’s shock results, EU leaders moved swiftly to announce sweeping changes to the way people look upon the EU flag.
European Council President Herman Von Rumpoy warned delegates that the electorate across Europe had sent ‘a clear message to’ EU leaders which could not be ignored.
Gains by the far right had been a wake-up call for EU legislators and firm action needed to be taken on future policy.
‘So, from now on when people look at the EU logo they will notice a significant difference – we are changing the font’.
Rumpoy said changing the shade of blue and using an even whiter background on the EU logo was just the first move in a raft of important changes drawn up by EU Commissioners.
‘EU legislators are in discussion about the appearance of our trademark flag too. In future it could either be darker blue or even lighter blue, discussions are still ongoing and the first drafts are only just going through parliament, it could take months before a final decision is reached. But one thing is for sure, the stars will be yellower’.
EU members could even see important changes to the actual EEC lettering with the Es swapping places with each other although Rumpoy confirmed the C would probably be staying where it is.
‘It is too early to say which way delegates will go on that one, it’s still early days....we’ve not even discussed spacing.
But we hope to have it all wrapped up in time for the next EU elections in 5 years time’.
Rumpoy said EU leaders hoped changing the font would help boost growth and encourage investment and put the economy at the heart of all future policy making.
