Europa stamps, bearing the official logo, are issued every year by the members of PostEurop, the trade association which represents the interests of European public postal operators. Aiming to build awareness of the common roots, culture and history of Europe and its common goals, EUROPA stamps are eagerly sought after by collectors around the world. Each year a theme is set for members to interpret and illustrate on a set of stamps; in 2019 the theme of National Birds has been selected for our interpretation.

As birds by their very nature are migratory and representative of countries all around the world, six species which can be sighted in Jersey feature on the stamps, together with the traditional symbolic meaning with which they are associated.

50p - Kestrel - Vision and patience

65p - Swallow - Hope and renewal

76P - Swan - Purity and love

82p - Peacock - Glory and dignity

94p - Kingfisher - Peace and calm

£1.12 - Stork - New beginnings and commitment

**Special Feature**
