Cyprus Stamps "Butterflies of Cyprus"

There are over 100,000 different species of butterflies all over the planet. To date, 54 different species have been recorded in Cyprus, 9 of which have been recognized as endemic, meaning that they live only in Cyprus. Butterflies are directly linked to harmony, peace and love.

The three types of butterflies illustrated on the stamps are:

Aporia crataegi:
Belongs to the Pieridae family, it is a large white butterfly with a wingspan between 51 and 70 mm with very distinctive black veins. It lives mainly in open forests.

Papilio machaon giganteus:
It is the largest butterfly in Cyprus with beautiful colours. A very common species with three generations a year and appears from March to October.

Cigaritis acamas cypriaca:
It is a rare endemic butterfly subspecies in Cyprus that belongs to the Lycaenide family. It is also called the Cypriot leopard butterfly because of the brown spots on its wings.

Available in sets of 3 stamps, full sheets of 8 stamps per sheet (3 sheets per set) and on Post Office Official FDC.

"Cyprus Stamps "Water" featuring Kouris and Asprokremmos reservoirs, two of the largest dams in Cyprus.

Water is one of the most precious commodities on our planet and a major heritage of every generation. Changes in the frequency of rainfall and extreme temperatures are expected to affect the availability and quality of water resources. The rational management, the appropriate use and qualitative upgrading of water is everyone’s responsibility.

In dry and semi-arid regions of our planet, as in Cyprus, water supply is a constant problem. The construction of water reservoirs was necessary in order to allow the timeless, as well as geographical use of water.

The two largest water reservoirs in Cyprus are Kouri and Asprokremmos with a capacity of 115 and 52,375 million cubic meters respectively. The water of the two reservoirs is used for irrigation and water supply purposes.
