Commemorative Issue: 50th Anniversary of the Council of Europe

On 5 May 1999, the Council of Europe celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. The whole of Europe will take part in the celebrations.It all began in 1949 when 10 western European countries decided to underpin the reconstruction of Europe with a small number of fundamental values. They founded the Council of Europe and set out its three goals:
  1. political: to defend and strengthen democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
  2. cultural: to promote the great diversity of Europe's common heritage.
  3. social: to satisfy the fundamental needs of its citizens.
For half a century, the Council of Europe has established legal instruments, institutions and programmes to achieve these goals and, gradually, to bring together the whole continent of Europe in pursuing them.
