Description and references

This diagram illustrates how to draw a euro symbol, based on official documentation, and has been prepared specifically for Wikipedia and released to the public domain.

The official diagrams of the euro symbol are copyrighted and downloadable from the official European Commission site, and include:

  • constr_en.wmf Windows Metafile (WMF) with constructions
  • euro_en.wmf Windows Metafile (WMF) without constructions
  • constr_en.tif TIFF with constructions
  • euro_en.tif TIFF without constructions

The official diagrams are provided in industry standard TIFF and WMF formats, and are meant to be imported into a graphics editing program, such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.

The Wikipedia version was created with Adobe Illustrator and rendered in Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format. It bases the guidelines for construction of the symbol on the key data provided for the official symbol, but it was prepared from scratch and does not duplicate the official diagram, and it is released to the public domain.

A very similar colour version of this diagram is available at Image:EuroConstLargeColor.png, showing the official euro symbol colors. It's prettier to look at but correspondingly more difficult to read.

A vector graphic version was built according to this diagram at Image:Euro-Construction.svg.
