Hungarian Red Cross Stamp

Hungary has issued a postage stamp with a surcharge to draw attention to the work of the Hungarian Red Cross.

Magyar Posta will donate the proceeds from the surcharge (HUF 55 per stamp sold) to the Hungarian Red Cross by an annual transfer of funds, which the Red Cross may use at its own discretion.

The main motif of the stamp is a cross with arms of equal length comprised of tiny stamps, symbolising the Red Cross. The design also features the logo of the Hungarian Red Cross. The HUF 55 surcharge cannot be used to pay for postage.
