In January 2013 the Austrian Post issued a stamp featuring the design which won the contest "Wertzeichen Europa". The "Wertzeichen Europa" contest was organized in collaboration between the newspaper "Die Presse" and the Austrian Post in the form of a media series subtitled "20 reasons to love Europe". Twenty visual designers were invited to submit. The results were presented in "Die Press" and then evaluated by a group of experts. The winning design of the competition by Bruce Mau and Elvira Barriga entitled "Diversity in Unity” is represented by the stamp.
