22 Oct 2021  Fri

A stamp from Poland was voted the most beautiful Europa stamp of 2021 in a competition organized by PostEurop and stamps from Aland and Ukraine placed second and third, respectively.

In keeping with the 2021 Europa theme of national endangered wildlife, Poland’s 3.30-zloty stamp depicts the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx). The design by Bozydar Grozdew represents the threat of the disappearance of this species. The stamp was issued on April 21.

Issued May 7, the stamp from Aland shows Bo Lundwall’s illustration of two moor frogs (Rana arvalis). Ukraine’s stamp entered in the competition shows a design by O. Symonenko representing the disappearing forests of the Carpathian Mountains and their wildlife.
