I love the idea of using Europa as the arms of the EU :) I think it should be made official.

Freude schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Now, if in tradition of the HREGN this was the "Holy European Empire of German Nation", complete with Habsburg Emperor and (German) Prince-Electors then I could nearly agree with the European idea, haha.

Hm, maybe Europa should have a different colour than the bull? Looks a bit like a big golden blob the way it is... then again, it's a good thing you used a proper heraldic colour, and not natural colours as far too many modern CoAs do.

I saw someone else using the bull and Europa for united Europe so I wanted to use it as well. Maybe the bull should be silver. That would work out as well. And yes, it's sad that not much people who design coats of arms aren't familiar with the rule of tincture.

Speaking of those, gold and silver next to each other? ;) Of course, like in the colours of the Vatican and the Kingdom of Jerusalem, that deliberate break of the rules could signify the special importance of the Empire. Alternatively, red might work since it can also be counted as copper and hence neatly sidesteps the rules. But red would maybe stand out too much.

The rule of tincture only effects on the main charge and the shield as far as I know. And placing red on blue is braking the rule even more. And there's no such colour as copper in heraldry.

If Napoleon would´ve been a German yes^^ He even said 1 year before he died: If only I had been born as German, and when they had made me their Kaiser, the sun would still shine for me today, and I wouldn´t sit on this damned island.

Though of course not being a foreigner would have been no hurdle to be elected Emperor. Charlemagne was no German, and Karl V is reported as having said "I speak Italian to women, Spanish to men, French to God, and German to my horse". Richard of Cornwall was elected Rex Germanorum in the Middle Ages. The only thing that mattered was that the Emperor had to be a Christian lord. Of course, the electors usually chose someone with relevant holdings in the Empire, powerful enough to protect them and weak enough um sie ihr eigenes Ding machen zu lassen.

Insofar Napoleon would probably have spent some time trying to unite the Empire under his rule, notwithstanding the fact that in an era heated by ardent nationalism, the Germans probably would have taken this an affront.

Karl der Große was not a German, but a Germanic from the Franken-tribe, and the continental-germanics were the direct ancestors of the Germans. So it was ok. At least he spoke Old-Frankish and was born on later german territory. Many French can´t accept, that he wasn´t a French, but a Germanic ruling also over France^^

Karl V said that, because the german language wasn´t important at that time and there was no real german language, but only all the german dialects.

And Richard was only a Gegenkaiser as far as I know.

YOu´re right tho, but I´m glad Germans ruled the empire and not invaders^^ Once August der Starke von Sachsen was king of Poland, tho he was german^^

No Franz II did absichtlich declare the HRR as dead, so that Napoleon can´t get that title and crown, because he hated him. He could only install a new Reich, but never the HRR again. But Napoleon was the best ruler in german states we ever had! Because he made the Germans wake up and fight for their fatherland at last!
