Stamp Puzzle - Find the Common Denominator

Below are eight stamps from different countries. On stamps are different motives.
But each of stamps have a relationship with all of the other stamps. Your job is to find this relation.




Please sent your answer with your mail address to my e-mail.
I shall consider only the first answer of each member.
All corect answers I will get to 15/8/2014 go to hat.
Lucky three winners will get a topical cover with recent Slovenian stamps and 3 mint sets of Yugoslav stamps (see picture below).

Hi members of SCF,
you still have 5 days to send me the correct answer.
I did not yet get three correct answers.

I believe information should be free and unfettered.

Some years ago a man used to walk up and down the cue of patrons waiting to get into the who-dunnit The Mousetrap, and telling them the ending. He was eventually arrested for behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace - and probably lucky not to get lynched by one of the people whose innocent enjoyment he had ruined.

I entered the puzzle with the answer/spoiler that Glenn Estus posted.... but I now realise that that is only ONE possible answer.
In the interest of "free and unfettered" fairness I would like to change my entry to what I now know might be the real answer that primoz requires. So...how about a maximum of two entries per person seeing as there are few correct entries anyway?

The solution of stamp puzzle is:

All stamps are from countries where Portuguese is an official language.
All countries are members of The Community of Portuguese language (Comunidade dos Paises de Lingua Portuguesa)
a forum of friendship and cooperation between the countries where Portuguese is the official language.
Community comprises an area of about 10,742,000 square kilometers and has about 223 million people.

The winners are: teals1, Wadmalatz (please sent me your address) and Partime.

Congratulations!

Next puzzle in Septembre 2014.


---------------------------
In dictionary I found this noun:
Spoilsport is a person who behaves in a way that spoils others` pleasure.
There is no equivalent word in my language (Slovene), we use word Spielverderber borrowed from German.

What is another possible answer? (Just curious.)

<I've got to come up with a real good puzzler myself ... hmmm.>
