Flag of IED
The Institute of European Democrats (IED), formally affiliated to European Democratic Party, was established in September 2007 as a new and independent Research Institute based in Brussels. Its primary goal is to promote a better understanding of the core aspects of the European integration process, and to play an active role in strengthening the confidence of European citizens and their direct participation with regards to European Institutions and policies and, above all, in favour of the idea of a united Europe.
The flag of IED is white with a light blue map of Europe covered with its logo. It contains their abbreviation and name, and five stars (on of them is blue, other four are yellow) in an arc placed above the abbreviation.
