Town Hall and Eleftherias Square among EU landmarks illuminated for Europe Day

Nicosia Town Hall and Eleftherias Square are two of many landmarks in the EU illuminated to mark Europe Day on 9 May and the month-long countdown to the European elections (6-9 June). 

Over 60 cities across Europe will be sending messages appealing to citizens to vote a month before the European elections.

In a press release, the European Parliament said that the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Colosseum in Rome and the Grand Place in Brussels are among the many EU landmarks participating in the campaign. Between Wednesday, 8 May and Thursday, 9 May, the campaign motto “Use your voice. Otherwise others will decide for you" or the European flag can be seen on the landmarks.

Other landmarks participating are the Samuel Beckett Bridge and Parliament Buildings in Dublin, the City Hall in Vilnius, Fort St. Angelo in Valletta, the Presidential Palace in Bratislava, the Plaza de Cibeles in Madrid and the Parliament of Romania in Bucharest, the Olympic Tower, the New Town Hall and the BMW Museum in Munich as well as the Art Museum in Stuttgart and the multimedia exhibition “Europe Experience” in Berlin.

Europe Day is celebrated every year on 9 May for peace and unity in Europe. It marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, in which Robert Schuman presented his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe that would make war between the nations of Europe unthinkable. Robert Schuman's proposal is considered to be the birth of what we now call the European Union.
