This year's Europa stamp is dedicated to the theme of peace and will be officially issued on 9 May 2023. In a stamp competition, the association of European public postal operators (PostEurop) chose the "Together" motif (face value: CHF 1.80) by designers Linda Bos and Runa Egilsdottir from Luxembourg as the winning stamp. The two designers created a new peace symbol for their competition entry. It shows interlocking hearts inspired by the Celtic love knot. By adding hands with intertwined fingers, the motif conveys the message of mutual respect. The range of colours used represents all the nations of the world.

Liechtenstein's competition entry, designed by Isabella Gassner and entitled "Hopeful" (face value: CHF 1.80), will appear at the same time as the second special stamp.
Her motif is intended to renew hope for peace. The colourful motif shows a child carrying the fragile Earth as a balloon while holding a lollipop in her other hand, symbolising the taste of peace. The girl looks towards a peaceful future where a colourful rainbow and a dove of peace await her.
