The First Day envelope features two Europa Stamp 2023 'PEACE - The Highest Value of Humanity' affixed to the front, cancelled with a special post mark, as well as a further Europa Stamp affixed to the back which is also cancelled with a special postmark.
The theme chosen for this year's EUROPA stamps is Peace, following a proposal by the Ukrainian post office. The decision to choose this theme was taken by PostEurop to show solidarity with Ukraine and to promote the universal value for all humanity – peace.
The design by Linda Bos and Runa Egilsdottir was inspired by the Celtic Love Knot. It is a visual metaphor for a peacefully integrated, cooperative society in which people embrace each other’s culture. The hands holding each other conveys a message of mutual respect. Through the postage stamp and this common design in our 50th anniversary year, our hopes are for a world where through the written word people of all nations, creeds and colours can come together and support one another in harmony and in peace.
