Pozadina koju čini plavo nebo i zvijezde koje oblikuju krug, simbolizuju Uniju. Broj zvijezda se ne mijenja, dvanaest zvijezdica čine simbol savršenstva i potpunosti, podsjećajući na apostole, Jakovljeve sinove, Herkula, mjesece u godini, itd.

Od svog osnivanja 1949. godine, Vijeće Evrope je bilo svjesno potrebe određivanja simbola Evrope u kojem bi se njeni stanovnici mogli prepoznati. Parlamentarna skupština je 25. oktobra 1955. godine jednoglasno odobrila izradu amblema kruga sa zlatnim zvijezdicama i plavom pozadinom. Komitet ministara je 9. decembra 1955. godine prihvatio zastavu ukrašenu zvijezdicama, koja je zvanično podignuta 13. decembra u Parizu iste godine.

Simbol za cijelu Evropu

Evropski parlament ponovo usvaja zastavu 1983. godine, koju je osmislilo Vijeće Evrope i dao preporuku da ona postane grb Evropske zajednice. Evropsko vijeće je dalo svoje odobrenje u junu 1985. godine. Institucije Evropske unije počinju koristiti zastavu od 1986. godine.

Zastava Evrope od tada postaje sinonim zajedničkog političkog projekta, koji ujedinjuje sve Evropljane, prevazilazeći njihove različitosti.
