30.08.2012 - San Marino: Terre Emilia Souvenir Sheet
Today, 30 August, San Marino brings out a special postage stamp issue.
It concerns a postage stamp sheetlet with a print run of 150.000, of which the net proceeds will be used for rebuilding activities in the so-called Emilian lands (Emilia-Romagna, in Italian), after the recent earthquake. ‘Let's reach our hands, give new blood to Emilian lands’, says the text on the stamps. The stamp features a plant that grows near the tower of Finale Emilia, with leaves like fingers that are reaching for the sky with a rebuilding brick.
