At a speech in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a permanent establishment of peaceful relations in Europe. Schuman's proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union (EU).

After the Summit held in Milan in 1985, it was decided to celebrate 9 May as "Europe Day". As of this date, Europe Day has been a day celebrated with various activities in the EU countries and candidate countries in the first 10 days of May.
