20100504 - CUBA

2 new issues from CUBA, but from the year 2010.  Sooner or later always appear some new stamp, and of course they are very welcome.

Release Date: May 04, 2010
Postal Authority: ECC - Empresa de Correos de Cuba
Title: FIT Cuba 2010 - International Tourism Fair 2010
Format: 6 stamps + 1 block
Currency: Cuban Peso (CUP)
Lighthouse: The logo of the fair is a stylized lighthouse, inspirated in Castillo del Morro.  This logo is present in the six stamps of the set and in the block.

Originally this logo looked different. And the image of the lighthouse was more accurate. 

But in 1995, when the fair changed his name from Cubatur to FITCuba, the logo also changed.  The graphic designer Hubert Delestre was in charge of the redesign.  The new and modern logo shows now an stylized version of the lighthouse.


Thanks Jaap for the alert on this issue
