About

The European Union (EU) came into being on 1 Nov, 1993 with the effective date of the Maastricht Treaty, signed 7, February, 1992. The flag itself has not been officially adopted by the EU in any treaty but has acted as the defacto flag since its inception.

The flag was first adopted by the Council of Europe (CoE) on 8 December, 1955 and later adopted by the European Economic Community (EEC) on 19 June, 1985. The EEC was renamed the European Community (EC) following the Maastrict Treaty and was later incorporated into the EU with the Treaty of Lisbon, effective 1 December, 2009.
