1441. 🇱🇰 Sri Lanka Commemorates Vesak Festival.

 🇱🇰 Sri Lanka Post issued a single stamp on 17 May 2019 to commemorate the State Vesak Festival. The design features a wall painting which includes depictions of elephants, an always popular theme. Rating:- ****.

  🇬🇬 Guernsey Post has released the design of one stamp from its upcoming set to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing. Quite what was the role of Guernsey in getting men to the moon I do not know. Rating:- 0.

  🇮🇪 An Post, the postal service of Ireland, issued 4 record-shaped miniature sheets on 2 May 2019 along with the set of 4 stamps mentioned in Blog 1415 on the subject of Irish musicians performing iconic Irish music. I do not usually like gimmick issues but An Post usually has a fairly conservative new issue policy so I find these items quite acceptable. Rating:- **.

 🇲🇾 Pos Malaysia has issued a Personalised sheetlet to commemorate the Muslim Eid Festival. The sheetlet contains 8 stamps (2 x 4 different stamps) with attached labels. The Pos Malaysia personalised sheets are always colourful and interesting. Rating:- **.

  🇭🇰 Hong Kong Post will issue a set of 6 Heartwarming stamps and accompanying miniature sheet on 11 June 2019. The unexceptional designs are by Tsoi Ka-ching. Rating:- *.
