EASA (website) is the centrepiece of the European Union's strategy for aviation safety. Its mission is to promote the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation.
The Agency develops common safety and environmental rules at the European level. It monitors the implementation of standards through inspections in the Member States and provides the necessary technical expertise, training and research.
The Agency works hand in hand with the national authorities which continue to carry out many operational tasks, such as certification of individual aircraft or licensing of pilots.
It was created on 15 July 2002, and it reached full functionality in 2008. Beside the EU members, the EFTA countries have been granted participation in the agency. It is headquartered in Cologne, Germany.
I have noticed that in many pictures a new flag appears to be in use. It is probably a more updated version using the new logo. Using some pictures I tried to recreate it. It appears to be a blue field with the logo of the administration in the middle. In the lower fly, a small depiction of the flag of the European Union.
