25 Years' Membership in the EEA

Face value CHF 2.20
Motif Network

A graphically designed "Network" (face value: CHF 2.20), predominantly in pastel colours, on a new commemorative stamp symbolises the 25-year membership of the Principality of Liechtenstein in the European Economic Area (EEA). Designer Hans Peter Gassner used partial UV coating to highlight nine colours of the design – colours found in all the flags of all EEA member states.

The 28 members of the European Union and the three EEA/EFTA states Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway are united in a single market through the EEA. Their citizens have the right to make use of the four fundamental freedoms: the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital. In addition, the EEA Treaty prohibits any discrimination on grounds of nationality.

The vote on Liechtenstein's accession to the EEA in December 1992 can be regarded as one of the most important in the country's recent history. With an 87 percent turnout, 55.8 percent voted in favour of EEA membership despite the fact that their Swiss neighbours had rejected such an accession for their country a week earlier by an extremely narrow majority.
