    I can understand the opposition about the registered circle, the EU is an economic union, but also a politic union.

    And the contestation about the use of english language only is legitim too : UK joined EU only in 1973. so, "together since 1957" in english is quite strange, above all because UK is probably the most reticent coutrny about the European construction.
    In the 6 "pilgrim countries", 3 were talking french (France, Belgium, Luxemburg), 2 flemish (Belgium, Netherlands), 2 german (Germany, Luxemburg). The 2 coutrnies talking english joined in 1973 (Ireland, UK).

    The fathers of EU are french and german (Robert Schuman and Jean Monnet were both French).

    So, the logo should have been at least written in french, german and english.

    They may as well print it in Arabic and avoid the inevitable cost of changing it.
