StampNews.com got to know that on 29th of January, within the framework of the solemn cancellation ceremony, the postage stamps and souvenir sheets dedicated to the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide are put into circulation.
The postage stamps depict the symbol of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide ‒ the flower "Forget-me-not". The postage stamps and souvenir sheets have been issued in seven face values, which include the tariffs servicing the internal and international letter correspondence of Armenia.
The Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th Century, occurred when two million Armenians living in Turkey were eliminated from their historic homeland through forced deportations and massacres between 1915-1918.
These postage stamps serving as little ambassadors of the Republic of Armenia throughout the world will support the cause of spreading the symbol of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide.
