Europa 2022 – Jersey Myths & Legends III- Ghost Stories
This issue focuses on some of the local ghost stories which have moulded Jersey’s history and culture. The small island of Jersey is well known for its long and rich history, and stories that span themes of excitement, love, and mystery. These six stamps have been designed by artist Jensine Eckwall, who has interpreted scenes from myths and legends which include amongst others the Bride and Groom of Gorey Castle, The Vioge of Crack Ankle Lane and the Belenji.
This issue also serves as Jersey Stamps’ contribution to this year’s Europa stamp catalogue. Each year, PostEurop’s Stamps & Philately Working Group selects the EUROPA stamp theme; this year the theme is Europa 2022: Stories & Myths. The Souvenir Miniature Sheet from this issue incorporates the 88p and £1.25 stamps into a decorative selvedge, with the EUROPA stamps logo incorporated at the top.
