BELGIUM - EUROPA 2017
Date of issue: 12 Jun 2017
We inspired ourselves on the sand castles that children/people make on the beach. We asked a Belgian illustrator (who illustrates also books) to draw a castle with a sand texture and based on existing Belgian castles. So the drawing is a composite of different castles.
In order to give the castle a lifelike feeling, the sheet as well as the stamp will have a “sandgrain effect by applying a varnish with a sand texture.

FAROE ISLANDS - EUROPA 2017
Date of issue: 15 May 2017
The stamps depict the fleeing of a Scottish princess with the man she loved and married against her fathers will. We do not have any castles in the Faroe Islands, however, we have a legend about a princess who did not want to stay in her father’s castle – and moved to the Faroe Islands.

It’s the story of the “Princess of Nólsoy” who left Scotland together with her husband because her father wanted to kill him. The king found them in Nólsoy, however when he saw his grandson, his heart melted and he forgave his daughter and her husband. They lived the rest of their lives in Nólsoy.

ALAND - EUROPA 2017
Date of issue: 09 May 2017
Åland photographer Niclas Nordlund has captured the only castle in Åland, Kastelholm, on a sparkling winter day for the Åland Europa stamp. The castle is one of the best known Åland sights. Erected at the end of the 1300s, it was originally a defensive fortress. During its glory days in the 1500s, the fortress was developed into a castle. The castle is today open to visitors, classified as a well-preserved ancient ruin.

ICELAND - EUROPA 2017
Date of issue: 27 Apr 2017
Castles were never built in Iceland, with the exception of Castles in the Air and Castles in the Snow, which are the theme of the Icelandic Europa stamps. Throughout Icelandic nature, however, castle forms can be seen. In the famous poem “Skjaldbreiður“ Jonas Hallgrímsson says: “Made of blue solidified lava / these are castles of rock for the freeborn.” This castle metaphor refers to shapes that can be seen in nature. The landscape becomes a visible construction which speaks to the eyes. Icelandic nature can take on diverse forms which might be called natural Icelandic “castles”. These include, for example, Dimmuborgir lava fields in Myvatn, Eldborg (Fire City) in Mýrar and the Citadel in Húnavatnssysla.

The castle is presumed to date back to the 12th century: Expert assume that the keep was built first and an inhabited tower was added in 1287. Mentioned for the first time in 1322, the castle came into the possession of the princely Family of Liechtenstein in 1712.

JERSEY - EUROPA 2017
Date of issue: 02 Mar 2017
The 74p stamp features a photograph of Grosnez Castle which is situated on the far north-west of Jersey, in the parish of St Ouen. Sir John des Roches ordered the castle to be built in the 14th century, around the time of the start of the Hundred Years’ War, to provide refuge for farmers in the west of the Island during French raids. It fell into disrepair in the 16th century and the ruins are now open to the public, free of charge.

Date of issue: 20 Jan 2017
As Posti in Finland recently released a booklet of stamps depicting old castles, Anssi Kähärä's Snow Castle offers a new viewpoint to the subject.
"I could not find the right picture of a snow castle anywhere, so I built a castle myself in Kymijoki, by the village of Iitti," says Kähärä. "I had amazing luck with the shooting conditions, as the evening sunset was absolutely beautiful."
The sheet contains fifteen domestic no-value indicator stamps.
