Constitutional Titbit - 3

Symbols of the Union

The flag of the Union will be a circle of twelve golden stars on a blue background

The anthem of the union will be Ode to Joy from the Ninth Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven

The motto of the Union shall be: United in Diversity

The currency of the Union shall be the Euro

Europe day shall be celebrated on the 9th of May throughout the union

Whilst this is all pretty uncontroversial, I have a couple of quick points.

1) Can we use the motto to campaign against EU legislation. After all the leaders of the project are unable to see diversity without immediately trying to harmonise it.

2) What does the mention of currency mean for countries such as the UK which are not using the euro. I find it hard to believe that someone will not use this clause to force the government on the Euro issue.

Why 12 stars when there are 25 member states?
