The Health of the Planet Lies in Each of Our Hands. This statement is proved with two new stamps by Malta Post that is being released together with other European postal administrations to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of EUROPA stamp issues. The theme is intended to express the world's aspiration for a better and cleaner environment.
The Malta stamps portray illustrations by two different artists. The €0.59 stamp was designed by artist Doxias Sergidou for Cyprus Post and was chosen from among 24 other in a design competition.
The design highlights the fact that ensuring a cleaner planet is a common responsibility and duty. The €2.19 stamp was designed by Sean Cini of MaltaPost who was inspired by that of Cyprus Post and seeks to transpose the same message within a Maltese context. The stamp features the 18th century Ta' Kola windmill in Xagħra, Gozo.
