Issue n° 40 - 1995

"Peace and freedom"

Number of countries : 49
Debuting countries : Bosnia and Herzegovina, Russia
Returning countries : none
Withdrawing countries : Azores, Madeira

Note : the Faroe Is. and Gibraltar didn't use the official logo that year.

Since that year most countries issue sets of maximum 2 stamps only. Some countries issue larger sets but with only two stamps bearing the Europa logo, it's still the case those years.

Moldova used that year the official logo but with a different R letter. I already wrote about that in an earlier message.

Eurovision Song Contest 1995
Dublin (Ireland)
Winner: Secret Garden "Nocturne" (Norway)

my personal favorite that year: Aud Wilken "Fra Mols til Skagen" (Denmark)
