Do you see the golden one?
The Universal Postal Union is an international organization that coordinates postal policies among member nations, and hence the worldwide postal system. Each member country agrees to the same set of terms for conducting international postal duties. The Universal Postal Union's headquarters are located in Bern, Switzerland.
Also the UPU Monument which was built on the 4th of october 1909 - the day of my birthday - sure i'm not as old as this monument :) In the UPU Monument (Weltpostdenkmal) in Bern, bronze and granite, by René de Saint-Marceaux, the five continents join to transmit messages around the globe

many countries has stamp issues with the monuiment as motiv.
Last year i.e. Switzerland had a joint issue with France.
