In October 1863 some 16 states met at Geneva and eventually laid the foundation of Red Cross. The idea of a single man later became the relief pattern of millions of people.
Pakistan Post Office marking the hundred years of the Red Cross Idea issued a set of two stamps on November 19,1959.
Design of both stamps 2 anna (green) and 10 anna (blue) was identical depicting the Red Cross at center circle. Face values were printed at top right and crescent & star at left, to balance the design. Dates in bold are placed at bottom in reverse and country name, in English above the white circle around the cross and in Bengali and Urdu on its sides.
Withdrawal date of these stamps is 30-4-1962.
