The Green Group in the European Parliament was a Green political group with seats in the European Parliament between 1989 and 1999.


In 1989[1][2] the Rainbow Group split, with the Greens forming a group called "The Green Group in the European Parliament", and the Regionalists remaining within a continuing but diminished Rainbow Group. The Greens and Regionalists stayed within separate parliamentary groups until 1999,[1][3] when the two Groups reunited under the European Greens–European Free Alliance banner.[3]


The group's formal name was "The Green Group in the European Parliament",[4][5][6] not the "Green Group in the European Parliament". Unlike other groups, "The" was part of the formal name of the group.
