STAMP ISSUES RELATED TO ICAO (1945-1977)

 

Equatorial Guinea : 30th Anniversary of the United Nations

 

Issue date: 24/10/1975

 

 

The stamp within this souvenir sheet shows UN buildings and natives’ cultures. The lower part of the souvenir sheet depicts UN Specialized Agencies emblems (including ICAO) surrounding the UN emblem in blue. There is a control number in the upper part.

The ICAO emblem shown on this souvenir sheet is an early-unofficial emblem in use for some time in 1954 and 1955, with longer wings set lower on the globe than on the current emblem. At the opposite right is the correct ICAO emblem.

Background: The UN officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, when the Charter had been ratified by China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States, and by a majority of signatories. 24 October is celebrated each year as the United Nations Day.
