Aphrodite’s Beach, Pictorial Definitive Issue of Queen Elizabeth II Overprinted, Republic of Cyprus
This set closed a chapter in the history of Cyprus stamps that did not portray the island's soul, traditions and values. It was a period where the ideal was everything British and more over that of the King or Queen. In the stamps of this period there existed only the opinion of the governing power that interpreted everything according to its interests. It was the opinion of a people completely different to our own where the basic values in our lives are democracy, freedom and dignity and the right for the same privileges and prosperity for all the people.
