The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) will commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations with the issuance of three stamp mini-sheets on 24 October.
At least twenty other postal administrations of United Nations Member States will join the UNPA in issuing stamps to commemorate this milestone.
The stamp sheets include the following quote from Secretary-General António Guterres:
"The vision and values of the Charter of the United Nations, which was adopted 75 years ago, stand the test of time. The United Nations works as one for the benefit of all – for peace, sustainable development, justice and human rights."
The mini-sheets of two stamps in the denominations of $1.20, CHF 2,00 and €1,80 were designed by Matt Willey of the design firm Pentagram. A souvenir card with a statement by the Secretary-General and Nelson Mandela will also be issued.
The United Nations today remains true to its founding mission: to bring nations and peoples together to preserve peace and security and to improve lives everywhere.
This historic anniversary is a time to reflect on all that the Organization has achieved as well as ways in which it can strengthen and reinforce its guiding principles to confront the global challenges that lie ahead.
