The "Go Switzerland" stamp is here! Over 13,000 people took part in the public vote and sent in their favourite from the six design suggestions. In the end, the motif designed by cartoonist and comic book artist Max Spring from Berne emerged as the narrow winner. The stamp makes the idea of "Go Switzerland" fully and unmistakably clear: the centerpiece of the stamp is a football, on which drawings of three fans can be seen. They are waving Swiss flags, wearing the Swiss cross on their shirt or have it painted on their noses.
The "Go Switzerland" special stamp is to be released on 8 May 2008 - just in time for EURO 2008, which begins about a month later. Advance sales of the stamps begin a few days earlier on 24 April 2008.
