EU Postage Stamps by Hungary Post


Magyar Posta (Hungary Post) has issued a stamp to mark the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The main motif of the stamp is a detail of the official logo of the presidency, the abbreviation "eu" in the Hungarian tricolour (suggesting handwriting), and the inscription "Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union".

The stamps are specially arranged by point reflection in sheets of 36. The stamps in each line are turned through 90° or 180°, or remain in the same position.

On the left and right edges of the square sheet of stamps the national colours continue from one stamp onto the border, and next to this is the inscription "Magyar Posta, the official carrier of the Hungarian EU presidency's mail" together with the logo. The upper border of the composition is supplemented by a barcode and on the bottom edge there is only the logo and tricolour continuing onto the border.

The motifs of the stamp design are repeated on the first day cover and postmark.
