Fictional flag invented by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas in 2002. Was never adopted as a flag, so not an official symbol. Was however used as a logo of the Austrian EU presidency a few years ago.


English: The Koolhaas flag, consisting of the colors of the flags of the then 15 member-states of the European Union set side-by-side in a "bar-code" type manner. Offered as a conceptual alternative to the European union flag, but never actually proposed to replace the current 12 stars on blue.
Español: La bandera de Koolhaas, consiste en los colores de las banderas de los estados que entonces eran miembros de la Union Europea, lado a lado como si fuera un código de barras. Fue ofrecida como una alternativa conceptual a la bandera de la Unión Europea, pero nunca fue realmente propuesta para reemplazar a la bandera actual.
