Code 657: World refugee day

The series is intended to represent the spirit of solidarity and hospitality at the basis of the worldwide celebration of the day dedicated to refugees fleeing from conflict, violence and persecution, forced to leave their countries, risking their lives at sea or in gruelling overland travel. The serene faces of refugees represented on the stamps indicate their different racial origins and the golden backgrounds recall the golden blanket, as a symbol welcoming a new beginning and of opening to a real mutual understanding.
