The 70th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter is an opportunity to reflect on the valuable contribution of the United Nations to humankind. The UN has always been a guardian of international law and international legality, performing a uniquely important mission to ensure global stability and prosperity.

The 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations should make us both reflective and alert. Every day, the UN is called upon to perform its extremely important work under rapidly changing conditions, as humankind faces new challenges and threats, including the current refugee crisis that has resulted in so many victims.

Greece was a founding member of the United Nations and has always supported it.  Seventy years on, Greece remains committed to the vision and goals of the organisation, participating constructively in its work in the framework of a multi-faceted and actively peace-seeking foreign policy.


This is the year of the philatelic exhibition “NOTOS 2015”, which will take place at the Peristeri Exhibition Centre in two parts: the curtain-raiser is “NOTOS 2015 Collectables”, during which the public will have the opportunity to admire stamps, envelopes, cards, coins, medals, photographs, historical documents, Olympic memorabilia, maps, old newspapers, magazines and many other collectables including matchboxes, playing cards and lottery tickets.

This will be followed by the NOTOS 2015 International Philatelic Exhibition, devoted purely to stamps, which will host exhibitors from 36 countries and award prizes to exhibits concerning southern Europe. There will also be displays of magazines, books, articles and other publications concerning stamp collecting by writers from all over the world.
