StampNews.com got to know that Cyprus Post issued a stamp on theme "Boats of the Mediterranean". This is a common theme of year 2015 for all the members of the Postal Union for the Mediterranean.
The stamp shows the artistic view of the boats sailing in the sea with the background view of the earth. The item was released and put on sale on the 9th of July.
Given the current situation of the numerous boats crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa to Europe bearing thousands of refugees and migrants it seems to be a remarkably apt theme for 2015.
All the postal operators within PUMed also known as EUROMED, will be issuing stamps with a common theme the boats of the Mediterranean, featuring their traditional boats.
PUMed was officially established on 15 March 2011 with its headquarters stationed in Malta.
Its goal is to support economic development in the Euro-Mediterranean region by promoting the role of post offices in the economy of the various countries and encouraging cooperation between the players involved in the postal sector.
