EUROPA 2016 – Postage stamp issue - “Think Green”

On 9 May 2016, MaltaPost will join other European postal administrations by the release of a philatelic stamp set with the theme "Think Green" so as 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.

The stamps will be issued in two sheetlets bearing 11 stamps. Each stamp measures 44mm x 31mm, has a 13.9 x 14.0 (comb.) perforation bearing the Maltese Crosses watermark. The sheetlets measure 158mm x 150mm. The stamps were produced by Printex Ltd in the offset process and the issue consists of 35,200 of the €2.19 stamp and 52,800 of the €0.59.

This philatelic issue will be available from all Post Offices in Malta and Gozo as from Monday 9 May 2016. Orders may be placed online at or by mail from the Philatelic Bureau, MaltaPost p.l.c. 305, Qormi Road, Marsa, MTP 1001; Telephone: 2596 1740, e-mail:
