Leonardo da Vinci once said: "Even though man has found a great number of discoveries by his spiritual abilities, he will never reveal the discovery that only nature can surpass by all its beauty, simplicity and immediacy, in which its creation nothing is missing and nothing is excessive".
In relation to previous centuries today the co-existence of man and nature has been greatly altered, because man has put himself in the centre of everything. Harmful consequences are being noticed all the more often, because industrial development has more impact on the permanent damaging of the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to grow in coherence with nature, and should use modern technological achievements for improving and developing according to the environment that surrounds us.
The Croatian Post Mostar has issued a commemorative postage stamp in a sheet of 8 stamps + 2 vignettes, a block of 2 stamps, postmark and First day Cover (FDC).
