EUROPA 2016 Think Green Cover from FRANCE

This beautiful EUROPA 2016 cover was posted from France with 2 lovely different stamps.
The EUROPA 2016 stamp issue has been one of the most loved issue of EUROPA CEPT stamps. Most of the countries issued the Common-Design Stamps to raise awareness among the populace for the use of Green energy and cleaner environment. The 1 Euro stamp was issued by France on 8 May 2016 with the common-design.
 The stamp on the left shows the Grand-Lejon Lighthouse (Scott 3371d), issued on 9 Nov 2007. It was issued as a part of a set of 6 stamps issued in a souvenir sheet - titled "Les Phares" meaning "The Lighthouses". Interestingly when I tried to translate Les Phares" from French to English using the Google Translator, the result turns out to be "The Fog Lights". The image of the Souvenir Sheet is as below

Oman - FIFA 2018 World Cup Russia - Single Stamp

Oman issued a beautiful round stamp to commemorate FIFA 2018 World Cup held in Russia.
A beautiful stamp with a denomination of 500 Baisa.
The stamp was issued in a sheet of 10 stamps with the official emblem of Sultanate of Oman on 4 corners.
A souvenir sheet with 5 stamps has also been issued in limited quantity. Only 2500 souvenir sheets were issued by Oman Post.
A lovely FDC was also issued with matching themed cachet.

Morocco - FIFA 2018 World Cup Russia - Single Stamp

Like Algeria, Belgium, Iceland, Mexico, Monaco and Poland, Morocco also did not use the FIFA 2018 Football World Cup Logo on the stamp. Moroccan team participated in the event, thus the occasion demanded a commemorative stamp ... And the outcome is simple - A stamp without the FIFA Logo to avoid royalty issues.
The stamp shows the players of Moroccan team in the foreground and the Russian Monument Buildings surrounded by Moroccan Arabesque in the background. Moroccan flag is flying high over the heads of the players, while the most interesting thing is that the jersey numbers of the players join together to form "2018".

On MAY 26, 1928, the Congress of the International Federation of Football Association, held in Amsterdam, decided to organize a competition open to the representative teams of all the affiliated national associations. On May 18, 1929, the Congress of Barcelona charges the Urugway to organize the following year the 1st World Cup. When the kickoff of the first World Cup was given in Montevideo in July 1930, he was far from imagining that this competition would become the biggest sporting event. Indeed, No International Rendezvous, has a comparable impact. All nations are concerned. Every four years, at each competition, the world shrinks even further to the size of a football field and the audience expands to millions of viewers who find themselves facing a spectacle that has become global united by the same passion of football.
The Kingdom of Morocco, which has already been present at this international sports event in 1970, 1986, 1994 and 1998, is participating this year in the 21st World Cup after twenty years of absence.
Morocco has made an incredible run to qualify and finished top of its qualifying group at the 2018 World Cup. By issuing a commemorative postage stamp entitled "Moroccan National Team", Barid Al-Maghrib , as a civic institution, joins with all Moroccans and encourages the National Eleven in its 5th participation in this global event. Thus, the visual of the chosen stamp illustrates Morocco by the flag and a symbolic sketch of the national team with in the background the Moroccan arabesque and the Moscow Cathedral, symbol of Russia.
This postage stamp thus enriches the philatelic collection devoted to sport in general and football in particular and which has dozens of postage stamps, the last of which is dedicated to the promotion of the Kingdom's candidacy for the organization of the World Cup 2026.

It would be great if someone could add to the information in Comments Section below.
