EUROPA 2006 INTEGRATION  

The ability to deal effectively with the key issue of integration will determine what concrete hopes there are for creating societies marked by greater mutual respect and harmony. Given that basic principles of integration policies are often rooted in notions of freedom, respect and the importance of education, it seems appropriate to develop these themes with this latest series of postal stamps. One stamp shows a church, a mosque and a synagogue, as a way of symbolizing the importance of religious freedom and the ability to practice it anywhere in the world. Another stamp depicts children at school, the place where together, as future citizens of the world, they can learn to appreciate ethnic, social and cultural diversity.
