Did you know ? Today is Europe Day !

Today, it has been 61 years since Robert Schumann, French minister for Foreign Affairs from 1948 to 1953, made his (more or less) famous declaration that lead to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community and in the long run is recognized as the foundation of what became the European Union.

To celebrate this day, May 9th is, since 1985, Europe Day, one of the symbol of the European Union, along side the flag, the anthem, the motto, and the currency.

It is a day of celebration when EU citizens are invited to come together and rejoice of their Union in Diversity founded on peace, prosperity, respect of the human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, rule of law, and respect of human rights. With such a program it is hard not to get enthusiastic.

So don’t be shy and Celebrate Europe !
