2013 U.N. Definitives
New York Office
The United Nations was founded in 1945 with the goal of maintaining worldwide peace and security. Today, the organization has 193 nation-members and continues to pursue international peacekeeping, peace building, and conflict prevention. In addition to these fundamental tenets, the U.N. also works toward objectives such as sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster relief, counter-terrorism, human rights and equality, plus economic and social development.
The set of six 2013 U.N. definitive stamps, designed by Sergio Baradat, emphasizes some of the essential concepts behind the U.N. mission. The New York issues explore the concept of Community and the United Nations organization. The Geneva stamps highlight the notions of Ecology and Peace. The Vienna stamps emphasize Teamwork and Love.
