From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Toine Manders (born on 14 March 1956 in Stiphout) is a Dutch politician and Member of the European Parliament with the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy, part of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe and sits on the European Parliament's Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection.

He is a substitute for the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy and the Committee on Legal Affairs. He is also a member of the Delegation for relations with the People's Republic of China.

In 2009, he rejected as "outrageous" an allegation by a Protestant group that the flag of Europe is a marian symbol, saying that similar symbols were also found in ancient Greece.[1]
