COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “ANNIVERSARIES EVENTS (PART B)”
Τρίτη, 4 Σεπτεμβρίου 2018

Hellenic Post is honouring major anniversaries and events with the second part of the commemorative set of stamps of that name being released on 5 September 2018. 

It is fifty years since the founding of the Orthodox Academy of Crete (OAC), the spiritual centre of pan-Orthodox renewal, ecumenical understanding, social cohesion and cultural growth on the island. Through its work, the OAC has contributed to the cultivation of a spirit of dialogue, to the coexistence of people with different beliefs and convictions, and especially to the understanding of science through faith and culture.

The Special Disaster Response Unit (EMAK), a vital part of Greece’s firefighting service, is permanently on call to rescue people and save lives in the most difficult and dangerous of circumstances. This year it celebrates its thirtieth anniversary. EMAK rescuers intervene with courage and self-sacrifice wherever they are needed, dealing with the effects of fires, earthquakes, floods, natural disasters and environmental incidents.

This set of stamps would not be complete without the 83rd Thessaloniki International Trade Fair, the largest of its kind in Greece, and one of the most important in Southeast Europe. The United States will be the Honoured Country at this year's event, where the presentations will focus on innovative businesses and new technologies.
