Sunday Stamps: Children
Google shows this picture today, 20th of November, because it is the International Children’s (Rights) day. This day marks the anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.
Today's Sunday Stamps theme also is 'Children'.
So I like to share this 'kinderpostzegels' stamp sheet, issued in 2006 for children's welfare, showing the diversity of children in nowadays Netherlands:
You can see more children's welfare stamps and learn about this project at Eva's blog of today (thank you very much, Eva, a nice surprise that you paid attention to these stamps today!).
Besides children's welfare stamps, Dutch Post issues the less well-known 'elderly welfare stamps', in cooperation with the National Foundation for the Elderly.
In 2005 these two stamp sheets have been issued, which I thought matching for today's Sunday Stamps theme.
They are showing pictures from the famous Dutch children's books 'Ot & Sien', issued more than a decade ago and illustrated by Cornelis Jetses. The sheets also show present pictures of children.
See more children's stamps at and via today's Sunday Stamps.
