Presentation of European Heritage Days

On 17-18 September 1996, the European Heritage Days, sponsored by the European Council, were celebrated in 46 European countries. Several institutional buildings, museums and private places of cultural interest were opened to the public just for those days.
In France, the celebration is also sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, which releases every year pamphlets listings all the open places.

Flag of European Heritage Days

The flag of the European Heritage Days is the European Union flag charged with a white skyline made of houses, a church steeple, a defence tower and a dome, thus reflecting the diversity of the European cultural heritage.
This flag is hoisted daily in Lisbon (Portugal) in the local office of the European Council's European Heritage Network (which is not a Heritage Site itself).
