Although the flag is most commonly associated with the European Union (EU), it was initially used by the Council of Europe (COE), and intended to represent Europe as a whole as opposed to any particular organization such as the EU or the COE.
The flag was originally adopted by the Council of Europe on December 8, 1955, from a suggested design by the Chief Herald of Ireland Mr Gerard Slevin, born in Cork City.
The European Union, which was established by the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 to replace the EC and encompass its functions, also adopted the flag.

 Delpech: March 2001, Pugwash Occasional Papers
American and European forces, acting together repeatedly since 1990, are coming to view theater missile defences (TMD) as an essential component of their force structures, which is why most Europeans are more open-minded about TMD than about NMD.
If the Europeans stick to their position that there is no real threat, that missile defence will not work and that it is too expensive, they could well find themselves in a world in which the US has deployed a defence against a limited nuclear missile threat but Europe remains vulnerable.
In the diplomatic sphere, the best policy for the Europeans in the coming months is to encourage both the United States and Russia to enter into a negotiating process on the issue of missile defences.

The leading motto for European journalists became "The devil is in the details." Reporters didn't pick out isolated elements to portray as models of social policy but instead scrutinized the whole picture of American social policy, and this became the focus of comparative coverage.
First, Europeans appear to be drawn to the "behavioral approach" of this new generation of U.S. social policies that are the centerpiece of Clinton's welfare initiative.
And in these smaller European countries there are plenty of other stories to be found, such as ones about their remarkable success in job creation, reduction of welfare dependency, and empowerment of weaker segments of the population.
