INTERNATIONAL PEACE ARCH
JOINT ISSUE POSTAGE STAMP
INTERNATIONAL PEACE ARCH COMMEMORATIVE STAMP BACKGROUND
Since the early days of the Peace Arch, individuals, stamp clubs, and community organizations from the United States and Canada have nominated the Peace Arch to be recognized on official postage stamps.
These historical efforts to feature the Peace Arch on postage stamps have been creative, sincere, and inspirational. However, none of them have resulted in the production of an official postage stamp honoring the monument.
Like many people on both sides of the border, we believe that recognizing the International Peace Arch on a postage stamp is long overdue. Specifically, we believe the Peace Arch should be featured on both U.S. and Canadian postage stamps to commemorate its one-hundredth anniversary.
Consequently, the International Peace Arch Association has applied for the Peace Arch to be featured on a Joint Issue Postage Stamp in Canada and the USA.
To encourage the general public to join us in this quest, we've created infographics and educational materials for you to download and share.
