“The European flag is the symbol not only of the European Union but also of Europe’s unity and identity in a wider sense.
The European flag consists of 12 golden stars in a circle on a blue background. The stars symbolize the ideals of unity, solidarity, and harmony among the peoples of Europe.”

How much solidarity is there really between the EU countries? How much unity can there be between countries with different cultures, different economical power, and different political background? Just how equal are we? Or are we just building a smokescreen and getting lost in transition?
The new tendencies of extreme right parties entering the EU parliament should tell us that something is wrong with the way we are trying to unite different cultures.
As long as we don’t see us as equal there will always be a battle for power, so let’s not try to unite different identity lets become one, the humane one.

Washing of the stars from the Eu flag in the sea I am washing of the ideals of unity, solidarity, and harmony leaving us free of ideals in the only truth that connects us. The fact that we are all humans living on the same earth, sharing the same sea and the same sky.
