Stamp Celebrates Boundary Stones
500th Anniversary

First Day of Issue: January 8, 2013 - Spain

Spain will issue a new postage stamp dedicated to the recognition of the 1513-2013 boundary stones (Mugas) recalling the treaty of neighbourhood, friendship, mutual aid, protection and use of pastures, paths and water between the pyrenean valleys of Aragon and France.

The stones indicate the boundary lines between Spain and France along the high valleys of the Pyrenees. The stamp features an interpretation of the recognition of the boundary stones with the clasped hands of the four aldermen of the nearby towns as a sign of their close relationship and good neighbourhood.
