Peace and Sport celebrates first 10 years with special stamp

By Staff Writer - May 10, 2017


To help celebrate its 10th anniversary, Peace and Sport, the politically neutral organisation that promotes peace through sport, has just issued a commemorative stamp with an emblem of peace.

Over the past decade, Peace and Sport, under the patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert, has played a pioneering role in promoting sporting values. The Monaco Association has been able to achieve many of the social objectives it has set itself, including programmes to build peace, reconciliation, the reduction of poverty, the development of education, and an improvement in public health in various projects around the world.

Joël Bouzou, President of Peace and Sport, said: “Peace and Sport is proud of the release of the commemorative stamp which illustrates the 10 years of the commitment of the Principality of Monaco to promote the values of sport as a tool for social change.”

The Stamp Office of the Principality will print 50,000 copies of the commemorative stamp at a price of €0.85. The Peace and Sport Memorial Stamp is now available at the Stamp Office, the Stamp and Mint Museum, the Post Office, stamp outlets in Monaco, and the Museum of the Post Office and the Carre d’Encre in France in Paris.

In addition, twenty “first day envelopes” will be on sale during the 10th edition of the International Peace and Sport Forum, to be held from December 6 to 8 in Monaco. The funds raised will be used to support Peace and Sport projects in the field and sports initiatives around the world.
