Yellow background, blue stars, or the wrong number of stars?
There are 12 stars on the flag, should symbolise perfection
Can anyone remember when the EU had 12 members exactly?

I always thought the 12 stars were the number of classics riders you could juussstttt fit in an echelon across a Belgian minor road when an ill wind blows from the east :wink:


+12 or +13
