     The Entrepreneur stamp was issued as a definitive in 2005. According to the publicity it incorporates three themes: SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises), markets and international commerce. The various elements of the design reflect those themes.
     There are two globes on the stamp, a small, very poorly drawn globe of the Atlantic Ocean with Europe and the Americas, and a larger, also poorly drawn globe of the western Pacific with the Asian continent.
     On the small globe the British Isles are incorrectly placed, the Baltic Sea does not exist, North America is a small blot, and South America is too large. Asia on the large globe extends all the way to the North Pole.
