Major Fail: Egypt Displays Photos Of Panama Canal On Stamp Instead Of Suez Canal
The Egyptian government announced last month that they would be doing the first major expansion of the Suez Canal in its 145-year history. In order to celebrate this major announcement they decided to create a series of special edition stamps featuring images of the Suez Canal.
But the designers got their canals mixed up and instead published a photo of the Panama Canal on the stamps instead. The stamp features a generic photo of a ship fading into the image of the Panama Canal Gatun Locks with a map of the Suez Canal above it.
This mix up is definitely a major fail to kicking off a multi-billion dollar project.
