EU Symbols

Flag of Europe

The flag of Europe was designed by Arsene Heitz and was inspired by a passage in the book of Revelations chapter 12.

“A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.
His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron sceptre.”

The Rape of Europa

This is statue outside the EU parliament building in Brussels described as “Europa and the Bull”
It is actually a scene from the legend of “The Rape of Europa”

The pagan god Zeus disguised himself as a friendly white bull and offered the princess Europa a ride on his back whereupon he carried her off, raped her and made her his sex slave.

We see it again outside the EU parliament building in Strasbourg (above) and again on the Greek Euro coin below.

A quick image search reveals one of these statues in almost every capital city in Europe

The Vatican Audience Hall

Looking quite a lot like a serpent with no Christian symbolism in sight.

And at the rear of the hall we have Jesus without cross, or crown but appearing to have wings much like a ‘fallen angel’.

United Nations

A fitting symbol for a one world government.

Deriving from the emblem of the League of Nations described in Wikipedia as “The first worldwide intergovernmental organisation whose principal mission was to maintain world peace.”

But this one must also have seemed like a good idea at the time..
