Description

In order to issue this year’s EUROPA 2023 stamp, PostEurop organised a stamp design competition called ‘Peace - the highest value of humanity’. The competition was won by POST Luxembourg and the stamp was designed by artists Linda Bos and Runa Egilsdottir. The winning design will be used on all stamps issued by all countries in the EUROPA stamp series.

The artists have said:

 “The world needs a new Peace symbol, uniting all nations. Cultural differences perchance a barrier for a state of Peace. If only mankind could respect each other’s differences by understanding their significance and responding to them with consideration, the world would be a better place. This design shows a visual metaphor for a peacefully integrated, cooperative society in which people embrace each other’s culture. It was inspired by the Celtic Love Knot symbol, with interlocking hearts. The colour palette illustrates all the nations in the world. By adding hands with intertwined fingers, it conveys the message of mutual respect”.
