Press Release
As an active member of the twenty-one members of Postal Union for the Mediterranean (PUMED), Moroccan Post has always been involved in joint programs launched by the union.
The theme chosen for 2019 is:” costumes of the Mediterranean”. In Morocco, the costume is a distinctive feature of the country's culture; its regional specificities make it the case of a secular know-how passed down from generation to generation. Northern Morocco is particularly known for being a center of excitement of tastes and styles; this area open to the Mediterranean has seen the development of several types of costumes worn by his men and women.
 
To illustrate this theme, the Moroccan Post issues two postage stamps reproducing works drawn in watercolor and which illustrate two traditional female and male costumes from the region of northern Morocco.

From 08 July to 8 October 2019, the PUMED open its first online philatelic contest for web users to elect the most beautiful PUMed stamp issued by the member countries of the Union on 2019. https : //www.euromed-postal.org/philately/voting
