WHAT SYMBOLS CAN CONSTITUTE A EUROPEAN UNION TRADE MARK?


Any symbol that can be represented graphically, in particular, words, including names of people, drawings, letters, numbers, product shapes or their displays, on the condition that such symbols be appropriate for distinguishing the products or services of one company from those of other companies.

The European Union trade mark affects the entire European Union.

The European Union trade mark is a singular mark; it may only be applied for and, if appropriate, granted for the whole of the European Union.
