What euro means

Euro

Euro symbol € is a sign of currency running in most of European Union. Euro has it roots from the Greek letter epsilon Є and it´s a reference to the cradle of European civilization (Ancient Greece) and the first letter of the word Europe, crossed by two parallel lines to postulate stability of the euro currency. The European Commission specified a euro logo € with exact proportions and colours, for use in public-relations material related to the euro introduction. While the Commission intended the logo to be a prescribed glyph shape, font designers made it clear that they intended to design their own variants instead.
