Croatian Post has released a commemorative postage stamp dedicated to the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Croatia, which will occur on the 4 and 5 of June this year.
The motif of the stamp is a photograph of Pope Benedict XVI at the inaugural homily held on 19 April 2005 on St. Peter's Square in Rome, taken by Kai Pfaffenbach, a photographer for Reuters.
The stamp itself was designed by Ariana Norsic, a designer from Samobor.
The stamp has a face value of HRK 3.10 and was printed in 500,000 copies in nine-stamp sheets.
With this stamp Croatian Post is continuing the tradition of issuing a commemorative postage stamp for each visit of the Pope to Croatia. Following the stamps issued in 1994, 1998 and 2003, this will be the fourth such edition.
