(TibetanReview.net, Jul04, 2015) – The postal service of Germany has produced a postage stamp that honours Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on his 80th birth anniversary on Jul 6. The stamp was designed by the Washington-headquartered International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) and produced by the German Postal Services.

The limited-edition postage stamp, valued at 62 cents, can be ordered at the International Campaign for Tibet in Germany (info@savetibet.de). IT has a picture of the 1989 Nobel Peace laureate and bears the logo of ICT at the bottom.

“This postage stamp is a rare recognition of the popularity of the Dalai Lama in Germany; it is sure to become a collector’s item. It is our way of honoring the world’s most famous Buddhist, the exiled religious leader of Tibet,” ICT-Germany Executive Director Kai Müller has said.

A spokesman for Deutsche Post explained that the stamp was a custom-printing ordered by ICT and “not an official stamp of the Federal Republic of Germany”. Nevertheless, it can be used legally to send letters, reported thelocal.de Jul 3.
