Post Europ changes 2023 Europa theme in favour of Ukraine
We’ve picked up the story from Linn’s Stamp News, and we copy the official announcement from the PostEurop website:
Following the decision of the Extraordinary PostEurop Board of Directors meeting held on 25 April 2022, the 2023 EUROPA Stamp theme will be “PEACE – the highest value of humanity” as proposed by Ukrposhta in order “to show solidarity with Ukraine and to promote the universal value for all humanity – peace”. Hence, the EUROPA stamp theme “Underwater Fauna & Flora” has been postponed to 2024 (instead of 2023) and the theme “National Archaeological Discoveries” has been postponed to 2025 (instead of 2024).
The 2023 EUROPA Stamps theme “PEACE – the highest value of humanity” will be based on a common design motif to be selected via a design competition.
