Europa stamps themes 2019-2022


Common themes for the coming years

  • 2019 : National birds - read the press release of PostEurop - "National birds are native birds living on the territory of a country"

  • 2020 : Ancient postal routes - "postal services, meaning the exchange of items over longer distances, put in place in a country or between countries before they were replaced by postal services operated by Governments and offering universal service (example: Thurn and Taxis)."

  • 2021 : Endangered national wildlife

  • 2022 : Stories and Myths

Proposals for themes 2021-2022 : In November we announced that PostEurop members could send their proposals at latest by 31 December 2018. For the first time the choice of subjects was also open to all stamp collectors !
In June this year, the PostEurop Stamp & Philately working group have gone through the results of the voting collected from the PostEurop members. In total, 36 Members gave in their votes, totalling 210 points. The competition was very tight...

You can read the press release of PostEurop informing about the choice of the 2021 & 2022 common themes.
