New EUROPA stamps..



Iceland Post has issued set of two stamps commemorating this year’s EUROPA theme “ Forests” as well as  International Year of Forests declared by the United Nations.

The first stamp shows tree-rings in a log (Siberian larch from Hallormsstadur forest) and symbolises the forest as a resource, as a producer of wood.

The second stamp shows a close-up of a leaf, symbolising ecosystem services of forests, specifically the sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere.

Spain and San Marino will also issue stamps on this year’s EUROPA theme “ Forests” in the month of April.
