Funny how the drawings on the notes are slightly different than the actual structures. Somebody at the german mint was slacking!

I for one find it a bit arrogant for them to suggest that every image on our bills here in Europe are buildings from Germany... theyre not.

...and let the poets cry themselves to sleep. And all their tearfull words would turn back into steam

i for mine find it arrogant to post this kind of pseudo-moralistic commentary 2 times. What is the origin of your attitude?

first: get easy going
second: if you look carefully, you will see that they just found like 90% similarities between notes and buildings, nobody is stating that the note's buildings are all from germany.

so please relax, we are in advertisement, not in politics

For non-EU users: all the pictues on the EU notes are fictional (so noone can feel his country is nicer than the others :-)) so this visual should be meant symbolical.

That's true. I've read about this somewhere. But, than the ad doesn't really make sense, does it? Or is it just a symbolical visual for the donation as well?
