Magyar Posta is marking the 19th FIFA World Cup, which is to be held in the Republic of South Africa between 11 June and 11 July, by issuing a special stamp.
The main motif of the design of the stamp is a football with the outlines of the continents referring to the world football championship. As part of the individual graphic composition there are figures dressed in the strips of different nations in poses reflecting movements typical of football.
The commemorative first day cover shows a crowd of fans celebrating in keeping with the style and spirit of the stamp design. The design of the special postmark is a combination of a player and a football pitch.
