Today We Celebrate Europe Day!
Europe Day is one of a number of European symbols designed to foster unity among Europeans.
The Council of Europe’s day reflects its own establishment in 1949, while the European Union’s day is also known as Schuman Day and celebrates the historical declaration by French foreign minister Robert Schuman in 1950.
the Community leaders decided to hold their Europe Day in commemoration of the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950. The declaration proposed the pooling of French and West German coal and steel industries, leading to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community, the first European Community, and hence is considered a principal founding moment.
9 May is celebrated in various forms in most member states of the European Union and EU candidate countries such as Turkey.
Due to the political nature of the day, it sees attempts at teaching people about the European Union and speaking in support of European integration.
