Europa 2016. Think green

On December 1st, 2016, 2 postage stamps dedicated to the theme “Europa 2016. Think green” are put into circulation.

Every year “HayPost” CJSC releases postage stamps in EUROPA series within the frameworks of the annual international stamps competition announced by «PostEurop» European postal operators' association. This year, each of the stamps was designed by a different designer because all European countries are issuing one of the stamps in this series according to a single design which was the winner of the competition dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Europa stamps.

The first postage stamp “Think green” (the winner of the competition) is designed by the designer Doxia Sergidou (Cyprus Post). It shows a hand replacing the grey color with the green color symbolizing that “it is in our hand to create a greener planet”.

The second postage stamp is designed by the designer of “HayPost” CJSC Vahagn Mkrtchyan and depicts a deserted and dead area while the other part depicts a healthy lush tree, symbolizing the rehabilitation of the nature.
