7th Independence Anniversary August 14, 1954

A set of seven stamps highlighting the 'scenic beauties' of Pakistan was issued on August 14,1954, but the stamps are considered to be definitives. From this issue it was decided to depict separate design for each value, to facilitate both public and the postal staff.
6 Pies Kaghan Valley: A beautiful stamp in purple colour illustrates the view of the valley in decorated border. All stamps in the set have identical elements; face value and 'Pakistan Postage' in Urdu and English etc.
9 Pies Gilgit: The stamp is in horizontal shape, in blue colour showing panoramic view of, spring in Gilgit through an arch.
1 anna Badshahi Mosque; The historical mosque was the subject of this stamp printed in carmine. The frame of the stamp is same as in 9p.
1 1/2 anna Tomb of Emperor Jahangir: The red coloured stamp in vertical format projects the Tomb of 4th Moghul Emperor Jahangir, located at Lahore, its frame is same as in 6p value.
14 anna Tea Garden; A view from East Pakistan showing Tea Garden.
Re.1, Cotton Field: Cotton field in full bloom is shown on this value in pale green colour.
Rs.2, Jute Field: Jute is a prominent product of East Pakistan, the stamp depicts boats in the river and Jute Field in the background.
The top three values are horizontally larger, having triangles on each corner, showing in Urdu 'Pakistan' at right and 'Postage' at left. These words together, in English are placed at the base.
