09.11.2016 - Liechtenstein wins Premio San Gabriele

(ak) For the postal administration of Liechtenstein 2 October 2016 was a festive day. On that date Liechtenstein Post received the ‘Premio Internazionale d'Arte Filatelica San Gabriele’. The award was handed over in the Italian city of Legnago, in the province of Verona. The ‘Premio San Gabriele’ is an internationally renowned competition with the focus on stamps with a religious motif. This time a stamp of Liechtenstein was the lucky winner: it concerned one stamp out of a series of four stamps, together forming the Christmas issue of 2015, to be exact the stamp ‘Es ist ein Ros entsprungen’ (‘A rose has been born’). The Christmas stamps were designed by the painter and illustrator Oskar Weiss.
