Vatican 2023


Date of Issue: 16th May 2023

two stamps (0.10 & 1.25 €)


About the 0.10 € stamp - Pope Francis received thunderous applause on Wednesday [6th of April 2022] as he unfurled and kissed a Ukrainian flag delivered to him from Bucha - the city at the centre of international outrage after images emerged of murdered civilians lying in the streets. [...]

Francis then held up the grimy flag, which he said “comes from the war, straight from that battered city Bucha”, and kissed it before blessing a group of Ukrainian children. Source Euronews
