May 9 will be another flags-on-buses day in celebration of Europe Day, which commemorates the historic Schuman Declaration in 1950.

Robert Schuman, the French foreign minister at the time, proposed the merger of the French and West German coal and steel industries, leading to the European Coal and Steel Community – a forerunner of the EU.
