Europa stamps: 1959-1960, 1964, 1969, since 1973 ->

"The first Europa stamp of Austria has been issued in 1959, the year of the founding of the CEPT. This first stamp didn't represent the same symbol the other 7 countries decided to depict, neither was the one of the next year in 1960. Then Austria issued a Europa stamp every 5 year to celebrate anniversaries of the CEPT (1964, 1969)."

"Only since 1973 Austria issues a Europa stamp on a regular basis."
