Proposals for European flags from Arsène Heitz (1952–1955)

In the early 1950s, several dozen proposals for flags were submitted to the Council of Europe’s Secretary-General and to the Director of Information by Arsène Heitz, an employee in the Council’s Mail Service and the designer of the blue flag with 12 gold stars adopted in 1955 by the organisation’s Committee of Ministers.
