Throughout the year, North, South, East and West, Maltese stamps fly out into the world. Four miniaturised artworks (3.1×4.4cm each) feature here to invite the viewer to travel to Malta, to welcome visitors who perhaps cruise into Grand Harbour, look around the islands, enjoy the sites and its gardens as well as Gozo and Comino. Additionally, the rabbit is a popular ingredient in Maltese cuisine. The central compass points to the country’s geographical outline and hoists the national and European Union (EU) flags as Malta became a member in 2004; together they convey the islands’ local and continental identity.
