Own Colorano Silk First Day Covers
Featuring 1984 U.N. Flag Stamps
Between 1980 and 1989, the United Nations Postal Administration issued 16 stamps each year featuring the flags of member countries. Now’s your chance to get 10 of these flag stamps issued in 1984 on popular Colorano Silk Cachet First Day Covers. These cachets are printed on satin-finish fabric, fastened to the cover, and surrounded by a luxurious gold embossed border. Each one pictures a person from that country, their flag, and a map.
The flags at the United Nations fly from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. They are flown at the same height and are raised and retired in alphabetical order. Eight to eleven men and women can unfold and hoist the Members’ flags in about 20 minutes. To the casual observer it’s a routine procedure, but the sentiments and care governing the flag ritual are anything but routine. The presence of most nations on common ground, signified by the ceremonial raising and lowering of their flags at UN Headquarters each day, is a powerful reminder of mankind’s continuing search for peace in a troubled world.
