Λογότυπο της Ευρωπαϊκής Τελωνειακής ΈνωσηςLogo "40 years of Customs Union"

As part of the project to communicate "40 years of Customs Union" a logo was created. Its purpose is to provide the communication campaign with a clear visual identity, and to visually link the individual communication actions conducted at European and national level under a common umbrella. The objective of the project consists of better explaining and highlighting - on the occasion of the 40 th anniversary of the European Customs Union on 1 July 2008 - customs' roles:
  • Customs as a guarantor of the safety, health and security of the European citizen;
  • Its role as a driver for simplification, facilitation, improving quality of life;
  • The coordination role of the European Commission which makes 27 customs authorities work as if they were one.

Logo "40 years of Customs Union"

The logo symbolises today's values and principles underpinning customs' roles. It expresses the movement of goods, cooperation across borders and the added value of coordination at European level. In order to be effective in protecting the citizen and facilitating trade, the 27 customs administrations in the European Union must act as one. The logo also refers to the circle of golden stars on the European flag that represent solidarity and harmony between the peoples of Europe.
