The competition was carried out by the PhilatelyAssociation of the seven Venetian communities of Asiago (Italy). Thanks tothe young stamp designer, Orsat Frankoviæ, the Croatian stamp has won threeplaquettes within the International Award for Philatelic Art.The exhibition "Croatiaphila '01 - Ten Years of Postal Stamps in theRepublic of Croatia," held at the Kloviæevi dvori gallery in Zagreb, has, inaddition to the above mentioned award, highlighted the flowering of Croatianphilatelic art, in the hands of outstanding artists. The first postal stampin our country was in use since June 1, 1850. In the twentieth century thepostal authorities of various state systems which included Croatia'sterritory, went on issuing postal stamps bearing the names of the issuingstates until January 15, 1992. The stamp, namely, accompanied the birth ofthe Republic of Croatia, stressing its fundamental values, key dates,events, and insignia. In addition to being an attribute of statehood, thestamp is a source of information on the past and the present, on history andgeography, on art, culture and sport, and on flora and fauna... It is aCroatian link to the world, be it through editions on common themes, orthrough shared editions with other countries (Austria, the Vatican,Slovakia, Belgium...). The stamp, in spite of its small size, plays animportant role in everyday life and its rituals. It is in itself a carrierof good wishes and of pleasant thought directed at the addressee. So far,the stamp has helped us celebrate many a holyday, ten Christmases included.
