1. Guidelines for beneficiaries on the use of the European Union emblem
According to contractual obligations, beneficiaries of European Union (EU) funding shall use the EU emblem (EU flag) and acknowledge the support received from the EU under the relevant EU programmes when communicating. The name of the EU programme can appear with the EU emblem.Show Hide

2. Guidelines for promoters of European Union programmes and funds (Third parties)
Promoters of EU programmes and funds should refer to the name of the programme next to the EU flag in the communication material they produce. The placement of the EU emblem should not give the impression that the third-party promoter is part of the EU institutions. Therefore, it is recommended to place the EU emblem and text well apart from the logo of the third-party organisation.Show Hide
