European Union on Spanish stamp

Heartbreak for Correos, the Spanish postal administration, for its stamps about the 50th anniversary of the treaty of Rome in 1957.0,58 € issued the 23th March 2007 (2007 issues on the Correos' website).

The map is maybe school-like with the list of dates to learn, but all the slow and progressive unification of the Union is visible (more than allegoric little star-characters). Though, the designer has some troubles with the respect of geography : Eastern France is difformus like Cyprus. Concerning the outermost regions (oversea territories of France, Portugal and Spain that are member of the EU), only Canarias are represented, excluding Portuguese Azores and Madeira, and French Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique and Réunion.
