Hungary Marks 800th Anniversary of the Franciscan Order

Hungary Post has issued a special stamp to mark the 800th anniversary of the foundation of the Franciscan Order.

The Secular Franciscan Order (SFO) is a community of Roman Catholic men and women in the world who seek to pattern their lives after Christ in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.

The main motif of the stamp design is the figure of St. Francis surrounded by a few of the major events from his life and places associated with him.

The perforation in the form of a cross divides the stamp into 5 main and 4 side fields.
