Christmas and New Year Stamp from Croatia..



Date of Issue : 5 December 2013

Hrvatska posta issued a stamp dedicated to New Year 2014.

Already for the seventh year in sequence Croatian Post and the Croatian Education and Teacher Training Agency  organised a contest for the best artistic solution for the New Year stamp under the slogan: Create a magic stamp and become a winning champ! Also this year the elementary school pupils in the Republic of Croatia competed and the theme, i.e. the artistic motif was a New Year greeting card. Pupils from 172 elementary schools did their best and sent more than 960 drawings. The work by Mia Štimac, 3rd grade pupil of the Elementary School Viktorovac from Sisak was elected winner of the contests and thus her drawing decorates this New Year’s stamp. The stamp was put into circulation on 5th December.

Space is dark, which we yet can not conclude from the opaqueness of night, since the Earth’s night is illuminated by stars, not to mention the colours of Moon’s and Sun’s walking routes. The Earth is protected and comforted by countless lights, and each gloom is brightened by some tiny flame. And that flame is a promise to human life: a promise that the gloom is not something final. When they were watching the space, people compared its movements with those of closer and the closest spaces, assigning great units of time to always smaller ones. Numerous calendars, through millennia, are outcome of such comparisons: one minute like one hour, one hour like one day, one day like one week, month, year… All moves in circles and all comes back: all speaks about recurrence and lastingness: and in hoc anni circulo, there is one day as an eye on the ring: New Year. On that day, all is possible anew: to leave behind and remember; or leave behind and forget. Go further and make it better. Be joyful, because the end has been tricked. Then, what is in the end, the children would like to know: in each end there is a beginning, though!

Christmas is associated with a number of symbols, like a falling star - which was the motif of the last year's Christmas stamp of Croatian Post - or with decorations which are put on Christmas tree. One such traditional decoration is the motif of the commemorative postage stamp that Croatian Post issued on 27 November 2013.
