"Principles and Values Of The European Union" 9.5.2016

The European Parliament Office in Cyprus, the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Cyprus Post, in cooperation with the  Philatelic Advisory Committee, launched a competition among 2nd Lyceum pupils entitled "Stamp Art: the EU and Cyprus All Around the World!".
The main aim is to promote the European identity and the principles and values ​​on which the Union is founded, including the wider knowledge and awareness among young people of the diverse benefits of philately.
The four best designs to emerge from the competition were selected and depicted on the stamps in this series and on the First Day Cover.  

Thank you Merja. But, I am not very sure that there is any such thing called EU Identity. The last few months have surely disproved any such fanciful ideas.
