Lithunia issued in the year 1997 this souvenirsheet, which reflects the East European view on Europe and Asia in one continent. Climber Vladas Vitauskas, whose name is listed on the sheet, has reached the Seven Summits.

The souvenirsheet is showing a world map marking the Seven Summits by a black point. It seems the designer of the souvenirsheet did not plan to show an other summit but Mount Everest. But in reality this is the view of Mount Pumori, which is situated in the neighbourhood of Everest
