THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Detailed rules concerning the information and publicity measures for the public and information measures for applicants and beneficiaries are laid down in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 508/2014.

In order to ensure a harmonised visual identity for information and communication measures for operations in the area of Union cohesion policy including operations financed under the EMFF, the instructions for creating the Union emblem and a definition of the standard colours should be established, as well as technical characteristics for displaying the Union emblem and the reference to the Fund or Funds supporting the operation,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Acknowledgment of support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund

The Member State or the managing authority shall be responsible for ensuring that all information and publicity measures aimed at the beneficiaries, potential beneficiaries and the public acknowledge support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to the relevant operation by displaying:

the Union emblem in accordance with Article 2, together with a reference to the European Union in accordance with Article 3;

(b)

a reference to the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, or, in case of a multi-fund operation, a reference to the European Structural and Investment Funds, in accordance with Article 4.

http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/communication/services/visual_identity/pdf/use-emblem_en.pdf

SYMBOLIC DESCRIPTION

Against a background of blue sky, 12 golden stars form a circle representing the union of the peoples of Europe. The number of stars is fixed, 12 being the symbol of perfection and unity.

HERALDIC DESCRIPTION

On an azure field a circle of 12 golden mullets, their points not touching.

GEOMETRIC DESCRIPTION

Image

The emblem has the form of a blue rectangular flag of which the fly is one and a half times the length of the hoist. Twelve gold stars situated at equal intervals form an invisible circle whose centre is the point of intersection of the diagonals of the rectangle. The radius of the circle is equal to one-third of the height of the hoist. Each of the stars has five points, which are situated on the circumference of an invisible circle whose radius is equal to 1/18th of the height of the hoist. All the stars are upright, i.e. with one point vertical and two points in a straight line at right angles to the mast. The circle is arranged so that the stars appear in the position of the hours on the face of a clock. Their number is invariable.

REGULATION COLOURS

The emblem is in the following colours:

PANTONE REFLEX BLUE for the surface of the rectangle;

PANTONE YELLOW for the stars.

FOUR-COLOUR PROCESS

If the four-colour process is used, recreate the two standard colours by using the four colours of the four-colour process.

PANTONE YELLOW is obtained by using 100 % ‘Process Yellow’.

PANTONE REFLEX BLUE is obtained by mixing 100 % ‘Process Cyan’ and 80 % ‘Process Magenta’.

INTERNET

PANTONE REFLEX BLUE corresponds to the web-palette colour RGB: 0/51/153 (hexadecimal: 003399) and PANTONE YELLOW corresponds to the web-palette colour RGB: 255/204/0 (hexadecimal: FFCC00).

MONOCHROME REPRODUCTION PROCESS

Using black, outline the rectangle in black and print the stars in black on white.

Image

Using blue (Reflex Blue), use 100 % with the stars reproduced in negative white.

Image

REPRODUCTION ON A COLOURED BACKGROUND

If there is no alternative to a coloured background, put a white border around the rectangle, the width of the border being 1/25th of the height of the rectangle
