Pont Saint Benezet

Image of the bridge was carried out from a bridge near the city of Avignon (Pont Saint Benezet). The Bridge in the Romantic style was built in 1178 and its history is covered with legends. One shepherd offered his services for the construction of the bridge, but no one trusted him in this. To prove his abilities, the magistrate asked the shepherd to remove a hard rocky boulder from the yard of the castle. If Shepherd coped with this task, he could then get lucrative order to build a bridge. The next day, the lump disappeared. Thus, the shepherd built Pont Saint Benezet. However, how the rocky lump disappeared from the courtyard of the castle, nobody has an idea since then.

At the bottom is the map of Europe and 12 stars of the European Union.

Large denomination in numeral below.

Comments:

The design of banknotes was designed by an artist of the National Bank of Austria, Robert Kalina and a graphic designer from Germany Reinhold Gershtetter.

All euro banknotes have the signature of the current President of the ECB. Director appointed for a term of eight years.

The following islands and overseas territories are shown on the back of euro banknotes: the Azores, the Canary Islands, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Madeira, Martinique and Reunion.

When probing the bills left to right should be letters and numbers, indicating the dignity of the monetary unit.

The note also carries the initials of the European Central Bank in nine linguistic variants, covering all official languages of the EU in the beginning of 2013 (the time of the banknote introduction), and now 23 out of 24 official languages of the EU28, in the following order (see above for details on the initials used already in the 2002 series): BCE, ECB, ЕЦБ (Bulgarian: Европейска централна банка), EZB, EKP, ΕΚΤ, EKB (Hungarian: Európai Központi Bank), BĊE (Maltese: Bank Ċentrali Ewropew), EBC (Polish: Europejski Bank Centralny). Not covered by the initials is Croatian, which became an official language in July 2013 (the ECB name in Croatian is Europska središnja banka, abbreviated ESB).
