EU Presidency to Use Barcode Logo

The Austrian Government announced on Friday, 10/21/05, that it would use a logo which merges the flags of the current EU member states into a single symbol, resulting in a series of vertical stripes resembling a barcode. According to the creators of the logo, AMO, the barcode "aims to portray Europe as the common effort of different nations, with each retaining its own unique identity." Its designers note that although the number of stars on the EU flag are fixed, the barcode logo can be expanded when new members join the EU.
