For the 600th anniversary of the Yugoslavian (now Serbia) town Vrbas the Yugoslavian Post issued one stamp in 1987, which shows us the Tisa-Danube Canal by Vrbas with it looks alongside an inland canal tug, which is not identified. On the stamp it looks that the tug has a folding funnel, but this is not true on the maximum card you can see that it is part of a postmark, why it is printed on the stamp I don’t know.

Danube-Tisa Canal: ... also called 'Great Backacanal', leads across the plain of the Backa and connects the Tisa with the Danube. The canal was built in the period 1795-1801 and was originally called during the Habsburg rule 'Franz Canal' in honor of Emperor Franz II (last Holy Emperor of the Roman Empire) and Franz I (first emperor of Austria).
Even the emperor visited the construction site. The smaller canal that starts from Stapar and goes to Novi Bečej was called Franz Joseph Canal’
