Latest 2010 postage stamps by Cyprus

Cyprus Post proceeds to issue two new stamps series on 10/11/2010. The first one on the occasion of Christmas 2010 and the second one is a Joint issue between Cyprus and Romania Post with theme "Viticulture".

This year's Christmas series comprises three postage stamps. The 22-cent stamp depicts details from the representation of the Birth of Christ from a 16th century portable icon. The icon, together with frescos and other icons of the 16th century are preserved in the small wooden-roofed church of Agios Nicolas in the village of Klonari at Limassol. The 51 and 68 cent stamps depict in a vivid manner the festive, joyous message of Christmas, as usually represented by Christmas decorations.
