"The Netherlands are one of the 6 founding members of the Europa stamps collection with Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg and Germany."
"They took part at the Europa stamps issues until 1993. After that year, the Dutch post said not to be interested anymore in Europa issues. In 2002, they issued two stamps on the them "circus" and we had to wait until 2007 to see them issuing Europa stamps again on a regular basis."
"Twice a Dutch artist made the Europa stamps common design: in 1958 André Van der Vossen and in 1961 Theo Kurpershoek."
