1853. 🇨🇾 Cyprus Commemorates Greek Revolution Bicentenary.











🇨🇾 Cyprus Post will issue 2 stamps and 1 miniature sheet on 24 March 2021 to commemorate the Bicentenary of the Greek revolution. The two stamps depict part of the monument of Cypriot Fighters located in the Garden of Heroes at Messolonghi which was erected in 2006 and the Mausoleum of Cypriot Fighters of 9 July 1821 dating back to 1930 located in Nicosia, both designs being against a background of a Greek flag dating to 1822 which used a blue cross on a white field though soon afterwards the colours were reversed to a blue cross placed on a white field.The colourful miniature sheet depicts the painting by Alexandros Soutzos painted in 1865 and now located in the national gallery in Athens which shows the national flag being blessed by Metropolitan Germanos of Patras. Rating:- *****.




















  Two Anniversaries stamps will also be issued on the same date - the first commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Cyprus Cancer Association and the other commemorates the 60th anniversary of Cyta, an organisation which was set up to “give the newly established state [of Cyprus] communication channels, to highlight its place on the international map and to keep step with every era”.
