Na ozadju modrega neba zvezde oblikujejo krog, ki predstavlja skupnost. Število zvezd je nespremenljivo, ker 12 predstavlja simbol popolnosti in dovršenosti ter sklenjuje krog apostolov, Jakobovih sinov, Heraklejevih del, mesecev v letu, itd.)

25. oktobra 1955 Parlamentarna skupščina soglasno izbere simbol modre barve z obročem dvanajstih zlatih zvezd. 9. decembra 1955 Odbor ministrov Organizacije sprejme zvezdno zastavo, ki bo svečano predstavljena 13. decembra istega leta v Parizu.

Simbol za vso Evropo

Leta 1983 je Evropski parlament sprejel zastavo, ustvarjeno v Svetu Evrope, in priporočil, da ta zastava postane tudi simbol Evropskih skupnosti. Evropski svet je ta predlog potrdil junija 1985. Institucije Evropske unije so zastavo začele uporabljati leta 1986.

Evropska zastava se je od tedaj uveljavila kot simbol skupnega političnega projekta, ki združuje vse Evropejce, ne glede na medsebojne razlike.
