1836. 🇫🇯 Fiji To Commemorate Hindu Saint.

 🇫🇯 Fiji Post will issue a set of 4 stamps on 1 March 2021 to commemorate the 125th Birth anniversary of Swami Pranavanandji Maharaj who was a Hindu saint with an influence in a number of countries. No other details of the issue are available at present. Rating:- ***.

🇬🇮 Royal Gibraltar Post Office issued Post and Go stamps with a new Year of the Ox design on 12 February 2021. The philatelic service is selling the issue in strips of 6 different values at a total cost of £7.95. The design, that used for one of the stamps from ordinary gummed sheets, is accredited to “Bajena and Siewhoong at” and was lithographed by Cartor. As usual it is difficult to accept that the featured subject has any relevance to Gibraltar itself. Rating:- 0.

🇳🇦 Here are better illustrations than I have published previously (Blog 1830) of the Nam Post (Namibia) set of 3 stamps due for issue on 16 March 2021 which depict local species of snipes. Rating:- *****.
