On 6 May 2009, UNPA issued a new Personalized stamp exhibition sheet to commemorate the 19th International Stamp Fair 2009 in Essen (Germany).

The sheet is composed of 10 stamps in the denomination of € 0,65. The photos on the stamps represent the following (right row, top to bottom):

  • Flags of the Nations at the Memorial Plaza, Vienna International Centre;

  • View of the Memorial Plaza and the D-tower of the Vienna International Centre;

  • Detail of the sculpture “The First Swallows” by Juozas Mikenas;

  • M-Building. On 25 April 2008, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Austrian Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik jointly inaugurated the new conference building (M-Building) at the Vienna International Centre. The United Nations Secretary-General stated: “The building will also be used as the central hub of many diplomats from all around the world to discuss the future of our world.”

  • Detail of the oil painting “Schmetterlingsbaum” (“Butterfly-tree”) by the Austrian artist Rudolf Hausner.

The background image of the special personalized stamp sheet “Essen” features the World Heritage “Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen”.

Hé, Wim, wat leuk! Zo kan men af en toe gelukkig zien, dat er iets méér gebeurt met je fotoos.

Ik vind het resultaat prachtig! Al blijft er misschien iets te weinig van de oorspronkelijke foto over ;).

Heb je deze foto zelf aangemeld of is ie spontaan uitverkoren?
