for Question Time at the part-session in December 2008

pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure

by Marco Cappato

to the Commission

  Subject: National and European flags at the next Olympic Games

 Answer in writing 

'Esperanto', a radical association forming part of the Non-violent Radical Party, has launched a campaign aimed at the national Olympic committees to allow each Member State taking part in the next Olympic Games to represent Europe as well as itself. Every athlete would display two flags, that of his or her own country and the European flag, and the medal tally would also show the total number of medals won under the European flag.


Does the Commission intend to support this initiative?
