"Iceland is far from the continental Europe but is part of it by his cultral links with the Scandinavian countries and their Germanic language.

And it's also confirmed by the fact that Iceland issues Europa stamps each year since 1960!.

In 1971, the Icelandic designer Helgi Haflidasson made the common Europa CEPT design that year.

In 2005, they won the Europa best stamp competition with a round shaped stamp."
