“In 2008 I hope to see the EU Member State teams in Beijing carry the flag of the European Union alongside their own national flag as a symbol of our unity,” said Romano Prodi.
If this were possible what a great message this could send to Euro-sceptics when they see the EU gaining an estimated third of the gold medals on offer?
What better symbol of the success, strength and collective identity of the European Union could we hope to see?
I’m not sure, at this stage, if this has been approved or declined by the Olympic Committee for the 2008 Games but I believe that the idea should be pursued for future and other international, games and sporting events.Author : EMI
