The Belgium Post has issued two stamp sheets to commemorate the 50th anniversary of independence of Rwanda and Burundi.

Ruanda-Urundi was a Belgian suzerainty from 1916 to 1924, a League of Nations Class B Mandate from 1924 to 1945 and then a United Nations trust territory until 1962, when it became the independent states of Rwanda and Burundi.
