Each year, EU member states commemorate Europe Day (May 9th) which has become a symbol for unity and strength of European states and people. Europe Day has been marked since 1985 in memory of the declaration made by the French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman in 1950. This proposal, known as the "Schuman declaration", is considered to be the beginning of the creation of what is now the European Union.
