Rejected: Designs for the European Flag
"Rejected: Designs for the European Flag" reveals over 150 unsolicited proposals submitted to the Council of Europe between 1949 and 1955. These flags aimed to represent European unification but presented a challenging design brief. Flags hold deep symbolism, and simplicity is crucial according to the book "Good Flag, Bad Flag." The Council struggled for six years to select a flag symbolizing Europe's history and diverse countries. Recently published by Jonas von Lenthe, the collection showcases the creative aspirations for a united Europe.
