  2. The ICAO logo must include four concentric circles. The design on this stamp displays only three circles.

Errors in the ICAO emblem:

1.     The ICAO logo must include four concentric circles. The design on this cover displays only three circles. The correct ICAO emblem is shown at the opposite left.

2.    The outer circle of the emblem is not a perfect circumference. Moreover, in the lower part of the emblem, there should be two portions of circle, as the wings with their portions of circumference are applied on the UN emblem.

3.    "de l'" is missing in the French name of the Organization. Should be Organisation de l’aviation civile internationale.

 

Background: ICAO provided instructions to the Contracting States to commemorate its 20th anniversary on 7 December 1964, corresponding to the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, in Chicago. This country still calculated the 20th anniversary on the basis of the constitution of the new permanent International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on 4 April 1947; this is considered as an error.
