Ukaine 2023 - Design national selection

Ukraine

UPDATE - stamp n°2 (with the sunflowers) won the Ukrainian national selection as announced the 26th of July by the Ukrainian post :

Not sure if it will suit the European voters as this "peace" stamp is too much related to Ukraine. I think n°1 or n°4 would have been a better choice. They have less Ukrainian symbols depicted, making it more a design in which more Europeans can relate to.

---------------------------

What I wrote earlier when the Ukrainian national selection was launched :

No information about the 2022 Europa stamps issue of Ukraine yet...

But the Ukrainian post is already actively working on their 2023 issue ! 

On the 15th of July, Ukrposhta published an online voting on Facebook (but also on Instagram and Telegram) in order to select the design of their entry for the 2023 common Europa stamp issue.

Their entry will enter a European "final" who will select the design used on all Europa stamps next year.

The 2023 common theme will be : "PEACE - the highest value of humanity"

The result of the Ukrainian selection will be announced on the 22nd of July 2022.

The legend of Bukumir Lake - The legend of Bukumir Lake tells of an Illyrian tribe that inhabited the area of today's Kuči, near the city of Podgorica. he tribe opposed the evil dragon from the lake by setting fire to a pile of trees on a nearby rock. When the rock glowed with heat, they threw it into the lake, which boiled. A man on a white horse jumped out of the lake and cast a curse on Bukumiri to mutually exterminate themselves. The curse came true, and only stones remained around the lake, the so-called kiljans, in memory as a remembrance of Bukumiri.

Tepegöz - In Turkic mythology, Tepegoz or Tepegöz is a legendary creature who has only one eye on his forehead – a kind of cyclops. He is an ogre that appears in the Book of Dede Korkut, a famous epic story of the Oghuz Turks. Source Wikipedia

Div or dev are monstrous creatures within Middle Eastern lore. Most of their depictions derive from Persian mythology, integrated to Islam and spread to surrounding cultures including Armenia, Turkic countries and Albania. Although they are not explicitly mentioned within canonical Islamic scriptures, their existence was well accepted by most Muslims just like that of other supernatural creatures. They exist alongside with jinn and shayatin within South- and Central Asia demon-beliefs. They are described as having a body like that of a human, only of gigantic size, with two horns upon their heads and teeth like the tusks of a boar. Powerful, cruel and cold-hearted they have a particular relish for the taste of human flesh. Some use only primitive weapons, such as stones: others, more sophisticated, are equipped like warriors, wearing armour and using weapons of metal. Despite their uncouth appearance - and in addition to their great physical strength - many are also masters of sorcery, capable of overcoming their enemies by magic and afflicting them with nightmares.

Simurgh is a benevolent, mythical bird in Persian mythology and literature. It is sometimes equated with other mythological birds such as the phoenix. The figure can be found in all periods of Iranian art and literature and is also evident in the iconography of Georgia, medieval Armenia, the Eastern Roman Empire, and other regions that were within the realm of Persian cultural influence.
