This editable professional map of the European Union is kept up to date with the latest status of countries in the EU, or in the process of joining the EU, or outside the EU. It is the perfect reference base map for journalists, writers, editors and designers needing to illustrate the UK’s EU Referendum, whether in support of staying in or Brexit!
Separate layers allow you to colour code the EU member states, EU acceding countries, EU candidate countries and EU potential candidates in any colours you choose. There is even a layer for small territories with special status within the EU, such as Gibraltar and Heligoland, if you wish to highlight them.
Countries outside of the EU, such as Switzerland and Norway, also have their own layer so you have ultimate flexibility on how to depict the European Union within the rest of Europe on your map.
Each country has its own path and fits together perfectly with its neighbours, with excellent boundary detail even at extreme zoom levels, so you can output the map at any size. The paths are labelled on the Illustrator file, so you can easily identify the different areas.
The European Union flag with its official colours (in RGB and hexadecimal codes) and star layout is included on the key. You can turn the key and map labels on or off as you please.
Below is an example of what you can make with our EU map base. Here we have created an animated gif of the current EU countries layered with countries in the Eurozone, countries in the Schengen area, countries in the European Single Market and, finally, the Single Market as it will look if the UK comes out of it in a Hard Brexit.
