Motif From Grey to Green

“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 will be published as the joint Europa stamp 2016 by every country.
In addition, Philately Liechtenstein is issuing 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, you can see a green landscape with mountains and a rainbow. The self-adhesive special stamp can also be affixed upside down. On the 16-stamp sheet, the stamps have been arranged alternately in each direction.
