Date of Issue : 6 November 2014
On the 6th November 2014, An Post issued three stamps to celebrate Christmas. This year Irish Post commissioned Vermillion Design to create three new stamps for Christmas 2014.
Two of the three new stamps feature details from stunning stained glass windows by Harry Clarke who was born in Dublin in 1889. His father ran a decorating business which specialized in a variety of mediums, including stained glass. As a result, Clarke developed an early interest in church art. Clarke showed an early talent for stained glass window design, devoting to both this discipline and to book illustration. Clarke continued to work on stained glass schemes, some of the most famous being eleven stunning windows in the Honan Chapel in Cork, installed there between the years 1915 and 1917.
The third stamp in this series, appeared in the Christmas Promotional Booklet, featuring a young girl, playing the part of an angel in a children’s Nativity play.

G.I.D.C. Industrial Estate was established at Makarpura, Vadodara City in the mid 1960s. This gave rise to a number of small industries. Makarpura Industrial Estate Association was formed in the year 1969. As the saying goes “UNITY IS STRENGTH” and the Association’s membership stood at 100 members. In 1976, the name was changed to “Makarpura Industrial Area Association”. As the Association became more and more popular among trade and industrial circles, other industries in and around the city also started taking keen interest in the activities, and in 1981, the name was changed to “Vadodara Chamber of Commerce & Industry”. Today, the Chamber has membership of over 2000 industries in and around Vadodara and VCCI enjoys confidence and co-operation of all Associations, Industrial and Commercial in the city and regular interactions and meetings are organised to deliberate on important issues concerning the growth of Small Scale Industries.
