Dynamic. Diverse. Unified. Imaginative. That’s the spirit of Europe, evoked by 10 posters created to celebrate Europe Day, 9 May 2010.
Now it’s your turn to pick the winning poster that best captures your feelings about Europe. The winning poster will be used for the annual Europe Day celebration, a day for Europeans to mark the achievements of the European Union in bringing the citizens of 27 nations together in a common cause and to debate the future.
Before you vote, here is what you need to know:
• Europe Day is the EU's birthday. The date of 9 May has been chosen because on that day in 1950 the French politician Robert Schuman presented his proposal to create an organised and peaceful Europe.
• The 10 posters have been chosen by an independent jury from among 1,703 submitted by graphic design students from across Europe in a competition to create the best poster to represent Europe Day.
• Using the theme “I love Europe”, the students were asked: what does Europe mean to you today? What exactly is it that you love about Europe and the European Union? And how would you express your feelings?
• The winning poster will be published in the EU’s 23 official languages.
