Poscard from Åland Islands with World Post Day postmark

I received postcard from Åland Islands with special postmark dedicated to World Post Day. This postcard itself shows one of the old post stamps used in Åland Islands. World Post day happens each year on October 9, This date is the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union, which started in 1874 in Switzerland. World Post Day started in 1969 at the UPU Congress in Tokyo. Since then, countries all over the world take part in celebrations to highlight the importance of our postal service.

Stamp used on postcard is personalized stamp My Aland – Caroline af Ugglas, issued on 04.06.2012.

Thank you Nina!
