Remember that the 12 stars (representing since the age of times the 12
constellations of the zodiac for those who wonder where that comes from
...) are an emblem of the European Union, not necessarily a symbol of
Europe. Then the serpent is highly symbolic too, meaning cold wisdom or
pure intellect, as in "wise as a serpent".

I thought I'd mention that since Europython took place two years ago in
a country which isn't part of the EU, i.e Switzerland.
