Think Green.....

Date of Issue : 7 March 2016

Here is a beautiful stamp featuring a Rainbow, my favorite theme. This stamp was issued with " Think Green "" stamp series. “Think Green” is this year’s motto for the Europa stamps issued by the member states of the trade association that represents European public postal operators, PostEurop. 

In a competition between all the participating postal companies, the stamp “From Grey to Green” (face value: CHF 1.50) of the Cypriot Doxia Sergidou emerged as the winner. It shows a grey city full of emissions changing into a green oasis. This design is being published as the joint Europa stamp 2016 by every country. 

In addition, Philately Liechtenstein has issued a national Europa stamp on the same topic. To this end, it held its own competition among trainee graphic artists and polygraphers in Liechtenstein. Aurora Corrado won over the jury with her design “Rethinking Green” (face value: CHF 1.50). She divided the Earth depicted on her stamp into two parts: One half of the Earth shows skyscrapers and industrial buildings in unfriendly colours while on the other half, one can see a green landscape with mountains and a rainbow.
