Indeed.... although the 12 stars no longer represent each country and
will contiune to be twelve they are still the symbol of the
EU. Russia, some blatic countries, even some northern vountries IIRC
are not EU.

I do understand that the twelve stars would make an association with
Europe, but I don't know if it's fair to make Europe == EU.

Well, I'm also for straight and simple logos, and I'm all for the
original FSF logo. The fact that this is an European org. should be
quite simple to see if we add 'Europe' to it; still, as I see things
the majority seems to like more complex and symbolic logos and I won't
argue with that.
