Artist's Description

This is part f a series of illustrations that I decided to do as a cartoon/critique to the nowadays economic/political situation in the so called western world.

I decided to make a modification to the EU flag in order to “illustrate” how things has been working in the last years, I explain my point of view:

Before Germany had elected Angela Merkel for Chancellor, the EU had a much more fair working system than now. Basically it was an eternal battle between poor/small countries against the rich/big countries, and things were working pretty well. After Angela Merkel got to the power that changed. Without asking a thing to anybody, she decided to take the “reins of the power” and impose Germany’s will to the rest of Europe. And the rest of Europe gave in…

This is not speculation, these latest happenings with the debt crisis in EU have been quite well illustrative of that.

So, based on this, and on Angela Merkel’s latest statements that she sees (and I quote from the newspapers of 25th Januay 2012) “…a vision of political union…” (and we all know that what she meant was political union under Germany’s ruling and not EU as it should be), I decided to create the new EU flag.

As you can see this is a normal EU flag except it has in the center the eagle present at the German coat of arms. I don’t think any more explanations are needed…
