New logo !


On the 2011 Europa stamps you'll see a new logo. A small square and black & white element, symbolic reminder of the mailbox, has been added in front of the word Europa.

logo used with the permission of PostEurop

As it is impossible to register a plain text-logo, a design element had to be added to the text "Europa". PostEurop will with this new logo be able to have a better control on missuse and on non official Europa stamps issues.

This new logo can already be seen on the 2010 Europa stamp issue of Switzerland. The Swiss post has the copyright rights on the Europa logo. In 2011 this logo will be featured on each official Europa stamp issue.

The present Europa logo is in use since 1993. That year PostEurop took over from the CEPT the Europa stamps issues.

Best Europa stamp 2010


As for the last 2 years, Hungary won again the Best Europa stamp contest organised by PostEurop. I don't have the number of votes for the Hungarian stamp but they won a close run with the stamp from Slovenia arriving 2nd and the stamp of Croatia arriving 3rd.

This on line voting seems very popular in Hungary as they won 3 times in a row !!

this 150.- HUF stamp is in fact part of a pair of stamps issued tête-bêche in a souvenir sheet of four stamps.

The Best Europa stamp design competition is a yearly event that takes place during the Plenary Assembly of PostEurop. The first competition took place in 2002. All official Europa stamp issues can enter the competition.

The result of this competition was announced during the Plenary Assembly in Vaduz, Liechtenstein on the 14th October.

The stamp has been selected via the internet ! All people could vote through PostEurop's website !

Here a link to the official PDF document published by PostEurop.

Here you can find the full list of winning stamps since the first contest in 2002 when Malta won.
