U.S. #1262 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Sokol program. It pictures the famed discus thrower statue that stands near the State Department in Washington, D.C. 
 
The Sokol Program
The Sokol (Czech for falcon) movement was founded in the Czech region of Austria-Hungary, Prague, in 1862 with the motto “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.” The fitness training center provided lectures, discussions, and group outings that encouraged physical, moral, and intellectual training. 
 
The first Sokol organization in America was founded in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1865. By 1878, the U.S. had 13 Sokol chapters. 60 years later, there were 20,000 members ranging in location from Texas to Canada.
