Spain issued in 1988 a Miniature Sheet for the National Exhibition EXFIKNA 88 in Pamplona.
In the margin are three sailing ships depict, which I believe are the three ships Columbus issued in his first voyage to America in 1492. Most of his experienced crew came from North Spain and special the province of Basque, which already sends whalers to Newfoundland before Columbus sailed to the Americas.

The MS shows us a chart of Central America with the town of Pamplona in Columbia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamplona, ... _Santander and Spain with Pamplona https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamplona also the arms of the towns are shown.

The stamp has a gravure of the famous citadel
