Design a postage stamp in honor of the International Year of Chemistry 2011

August 16, 2010

The Slovak Republic, Spain, and Indonesia are planning to design and release commemorative stamps in honor of the International Year of Chemistry 2011.

For more information on the activities these countries are planning please see the following links:

Slovak Republic Commemorative Postage Stamp
Spanish Commemorative Postage Stamp
Indonesnian Commemorative Postage Stamp

We would love to feature your country’s stamp on this page so please keep us informed if you are planning a stamp. Since postage stamps are so widely used they are an excellent way to ignite interest in both Chemistry and the International Year of Chemistry celebration.

Can’t think of what you want to feature on your stamp? Be creative! Features on stamps could be anything from an anniversary stamp such as the Polish stamp we feature in this article to a call for art stamp. Your country could also choose to use the IYC logo, following the lead of the Slovak Republic’s stamp.

If you would like more information on the specifics of the stamps in one of these countries, contact the activity author: Milan Drabik for Slovak Republic, Concepció Roca for Spain, and Yessi Permana for Indonesia.
