Description

Vote for the 2017 Most Beautiful EUROPA Stamp

We invite you to vote for our 59p stamp on www.posteurop.org/europa2017. The online competition organised by PostEurop, the association representing European Public Postal Operators, launched on 9 May 2017 – Europe Day - and will end on 9 September 2017.  The winning stamps will be announced at the Plenary Assembly to be held on 28 September 2017 in Bucharest, Romania.

EUROPA stamps are special stamps issued by European postal administrations, which bear the official EUROPA logo. EUROPA stamp issues are among the most collected and most popular stamps in the world. Each year PostEurop's Stamps & Philately Working Group selects the EUROPA stamp theme and for 2017 this is " Europe - Castles"

Guernsey's most famous Castle, Castle Cornet has stood guard over St Peter Port's Harbour for 800 years. Built in 1202 to defend what was once a busy trading harbour, it remains surrounded by the sea, a short walk from the town centre with spectacular panoramic views of St Peter Port and out across to the other Channel Islands

Castle Cornet, listed as a Protected Monument in the late 1930's, is a museum in itself, and one that also houses five museums within its ancient walls.
