the 12 signs of the Zodiac, watching the European flag or watching a one euro coin we see a symbol of 12 stars in a circle, in the wikipedia is you textually that the only reason to make 12 stars that form the symbol of the European union, something that does not have any relationship with the number of members, is that it is a symbol of perfection, the number 12 a played an important role throughout the history and the Christian religion, it is the number of disciples who chose according to account the legend, Jesus, the number 12 is also symbolic, means choice. Why discusses the 12 tribes of Israel, when in fact the old testament mentions more than 12; but this is to say that they were chosen tribes.
