With 52 members in 49 countries, the trade association PostEurop was established in 1993 to represent the interests of European public postal operators.
One of PostEurop's key initiatives is to promote philately through its EUROPA campaign which aims to build awareness of the common roots, culture and history of Europe through its EUROPA stamps. Having first been issued in 1956, PostEurop became responsible for issuing EUROPA stamps in 1993, which remain popular and eagerly sought by collectors throughout the world.
Each year a theme is set for PostEurop members to interpret and illustrate on a set of EUROPA stamps. In 2016 we issued a set of stamps designed to highlight the difference between a 'green' and a polluted environment for the Think Green theme and the following year, we depicted the wonderful Castle Cornet in Guernsey for the theme Castles.
For 2018, Guernsey has issued a set of stamps and a souvenir sheet depicting some of Guernsey's bridges and causeways for this year's chosen theme of Bridges; the stamps depicting Castle Cornet and its breakwater and the Reservoir bear the EUROPA logo.
