Denumirea, sigla și identitatea vizuală
(1) The name of the Association is ASOCIAȚIA EUROPEANĂ DE STUDII INTERNAȚIONALE (EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDIES – EAIS) in accordance with the Answer 15B / No. 1425 of June 14, 2016 issued by the General Secretariat of the Romanian Government and with the Proof of name availability no. 154 383 of July 5, 2016 issued by the Communication and Public Relations Service of the Ministry of Justice.
(2) The acronym of the Association is EAIS.
(3) In carrying out its visual identity, the Association is enabled to use " the Annunciation stylized Cross " of Mitrea Family Graphic Opera, work registered in the National Registry of Creations by the Romanian Copyright Office under RGII / IES / NR.8269 / 10.29.2015 . For good reasons , the copyright holder of the work mentioned above may revoke the right conferred to the Association.
(4) The choice of integrating the "Annunciation" as part of the Association’s identity, has a symbolic function. On one hand, on the 25th of March, Christians celebrate the day when Archangel Gabriel announced Virgin Mary that she would give birth to Jesus Christ, and, on the other hand, on the 25th of March 1957, the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community and the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community – two fundamental legal tools of the European Union history, were concluded in Rome. This is not a simple coincidence since the place chosen to sign the two treaties was Rome - center of the Catholic Church. It was an Annunciation for Europe indeed. There is a particularly tight relationship between Christianity and the European Union, and the most visible example is the union flag itself: the twelve stars have been inspired among others, from the representation of Virgin Mary’s halo in Roman Catholic iconography. The concept of “Annunciation” reveals as well an optimistic perspective on international relations.
