I love both stamps (canceled and not) GORGEOUS :D but for me the canceled ones are more beautiful, great and intelligent design. The new ones seems to fit to EUROPA 2012 VISIT.

The cancelled one is good, i wonder why'd they have to cancel it. I love the nature appeal of the stamp and it shows a concern for mother earth. I bet, if they would still produce it in other time, it would be purchased worldwide. For those who loves collecting stamps like me, visit ~ Love Stamp

It is interesting that Ukrposhta haven't informed about the cancelled issue on its official web-site. I didn't know about it until I have looked your page :) Thanks for information and pictures of the cancelled issue.
