Did you know that the Europa stamps had a little brother on the American continent ?
Since 1989, the member countries of the Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal (UPAEP) issue the so called America-UPAEP stamps.
As the Europa stamps, each country issue a single or a set of stamps following a common theme. Each stamp bears, the word "America" and/or just the "UPAEP" logo.
Two European countries are member of the UPAEP: Portugal and Spain. Portugal took part only a few years at the America-UPAEP issues - 7 times between 1993 and 2003 as Spain is taking part non-stop since 1989.
This year's common theme is : "National symbols".
If somebody want's to swap America stamps with me for Europa stamps, don't hesitate to contact me ! :o)
