Hello!

Welcome to the

European Union.

Did you know that the European Union is

made up of 28 countries and has a population

of about 508 million?

Come and discover these 28 countries, colour in

their flags and guess the names of their capitals from

the letters that have been jumbled up. You’ll see

what fun it is!

If you need help, you’ll find the flags, the

names of the capital cities and the map

of Europe at the end of the colouring

book.

Have fun!
