Arthur Eisenmenger

Despite claims by the European politicians to the contrary, the Euro symbol was first designed by a German designer, Luxembourg-based euro-fanatic, Arthur Eisenmenger (b. 1915), who was the former Chief Graphician of the European Community until his retirement in 1974. He also designed the European Union flag. Eisenmenger claimed that it was in fact he who created the symbol a quarter of a century before its unveiling in 1997. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿
