The theme chosen for the EUROPA 2013 stamps, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of PostEurop, is "The post office van".
Post office vans are iconic symbols of the post system, mainly due to their bright colours. They are one of the most easily recognisable vehicles on the road.
Post Luxembourg uses low fuel consumption vehicles, in particular electric vehicles (the Renault Kangoo on the €0.85 stamp). This reduces the environmental impact of collection, transport and delivery of mail.
The second stamp, €0.60, shows the Citroën 2 CV AZU which was used by the Luxembourg postal service at the beginning of the 1960s. In March 2013, an authentic 2CV AZU in the historic colours of the postal service was added to P&T's collection of historic vehicles.
