|For the second year running member states of the Postal Union of the Mediterranean "Euromed Postal" are issuing a single stamp with the common theme "Boats of the Mediterranean".
Throughout mankind's history the sea has played a very significant role in the expansion of trade and today we can say it is the cradle of globalization. The different types of boats contributed to achieving that objective. Leisure boats, fishing boats and transshipment boats are some of the types that member countries of the Postal Union for the Mediterranean will illustrate on their stamps.
The Cyprus stamp depicts four different boat types including a Cypriot fisherman's boat in the background.
