Anniversary envelope «Helvetia 2022 World Stamp Exhibition Lugano»
Switzerland is inviting visitors to attend the HELVETIA 2022 World Stamp Exhibition, which will take place from 18 to 22 May at the Padiglione Conza fairground and convention center in Lugano. The famous seated Helvetia, who is celebrating her 160th anniversary, is being honoured. This is the second miniature sheet to be issued at HELVETIA 2022. It is dedicated to the major anniversary of the seated Helvetia, the legendary stamp first issued in 1862, which was the first to bear the lettering “Helvetia” and also Switzerland’s first perforated stamp. The seated Helvetia herself is looking forwards – into the future. Both respectful of tradition and elegant, it invites the world to visit Lugano. HELVETIA 2022 is a specialized exhibition under FIP patronage and with FEPA recognition. It is being organized by the Swiss Federation of Philatelic Societies in cooperation with the Philately Society of Lugano. HELVETIA 2022 is also being held under the patronage of the Association Internationale des Journalistes Philatéliques and the Académie Européenne de Philatélie.
