Olympic stamp issue by San Marino

This stamp issue designed by M. Fontana is dedicated to the 30th edition of the most famous world sport event - The Summer Olympic Games.

With this issue of four stamps, San Marino Post wants to celebrate not only swimming, athletics and trap shooting but also the historical origins of this competition.

On the first stamp, for example, Fontana represented the Olympic torch, one of the symbols of Ancient Greece, when the fire was kept burning for the whole period of the games. The fire was reintroduced in the Olympic games of 1928 and from that year it is part of the opening ceremony.
