Honorary Citizen of Europe is an honour bestowed by the European heads of state or government, for extraordinary work to promote European cooperation. So far, it has only been bestowed on two people: Jean Monnet (2 April 1976, during the meeting of the council in Luxembourg)[1] and Helmut Kohl (11 December 1998, during the meeting of the council in Vienna).[2]
