Italy – 150th Anniversary of the Tricolour - the Symbol of National Identity

A stamp, FDC, Maxi card and a mini sheet were issued by Italy on January 7, 2011 whilst celebrating the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy dedicated to the Tricolour National Flag, the symbol of national identity. The stamp shows the three colours of the Italian flag crossed through by two waving green and red ribbons that continue outside of the design at both the top and the bottom. The word “ITALIA” and the denomination “€ 0,60” complete the stamp. This nice maxi card was sent to me by Roberto.
