Happy birthday, Romania!
Happy birthday, to Romanians everywhere!
December 1 represents our ideal, as a nation, to be free and united in a prosperous Romania. Romania’s National Day is a day in which we all, wherever we are, celebrate our homeland, and in which we remember 1918, when Romanians lived the emotion of Reunification.
Thus, to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the first military parade, Romfilatelia, introduces into circulation, on December 1, 2021, the issue of postage stamps Arc de Triomphe, the landmark of history (1941-2021), in honor of the heroes who fell in battle for the liberation of Basarabia and the North of Bucovina.
The anniversary postage stamps issue, consisting of a postage stamp with a face value of Lei 10 and a First Day Cover suggestively illustrates the military parade of 1941 (postage stamp) and a current military parade of December 1st (First Day Cover). The architectural detail of the Arch of Triumph symbolizing Victory and the vignettes that reproduce the effigies of Queen Maria and King Ferdinand I harmoniously summarize the idea and significance of the event dedicated to the honouring of the heroes and the “Unifier” Kings of Greater Romania.
Romfilatelia thanks the Ministry of National Defence and the Romanian National Military Archives for the documentary and photographic support provided for the development of this postage stamps issue.
The postage stamps issue “The Arch of Triumph, a Historical Landmark (1941-2021)” will be available on Wednesday, 01th of December 2021, in Romfilatelia’s shops network in Bucharest, Bacau, Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi and Timisoara and online on https://romfilatelia.ro/store/.
