EUROPA stamps are special stamps issued by European postal administrations which bear

the offi cial EUROPA logo, a PostEurop registered trademark under the aegis of PostEurop in

which Europe is the central theme. EUROPA stamp issues are among the most collected and

most popular stamps in the world and have been issued for over 60 years. Every year a new

theme is assigned by PostEurop and all participating countries will issue stamps with their own

interpretation of the theme.

 

The theme for 2018 is Bridges. The illustrations featured on the stamps were commissioned to

Gibraltarian artist Mr Leslie Gaduzo and depict the following bridges in Gibraltar; Corral Road

Bridge, Landport Bridge, Montagu Curtain Bridge and the modern 71m Windsor Suspension

Bridge, located between two Batteries and constructed over a 50 metre gorge.

 

Bridges are structures built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such

as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. There

are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations.

Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where

the bridge is constructed and the material used to make it.
