Moldova issues stamp to mark 60th anniversary of refugee convention

The Moldovan Post Office has issued a special postage stamp to mark the 60th anniversary of UNHCR's founding and the adoption of the UN Refugee Convention.

The colourful stamp, which has a value of 1.20 Moldovan Leu, depicts a pyramid of human figures covered by the UNHCR protecting hands that form part of the agency's official logo.

The stamp was designed by respected Moldovan graphic artist Vitalie Rosca and is believed to be the only stamp issued by a national post office to celebrate the important landmark for UNHCR, which was founded in December 1950 and has since helped millions of people around the world.
