The representations on the two €0.34 and €0.41 cent stamps take us to the festive spirit of the great holiday of Christmas.

The €0.64 cent stamp illustrates the mural painting of the worshipping Panagia Arakiotissa and Kecharitomeni (Our Lady of Araka full of Grace) from the Church of Araka in Lagoudera dating back to 1192. This masterpiece of Arakiotissa is unique as to its content and symbolisms. The posture of Jesus leaning in his mother hands reminds us of the image of Christ-child as eucharistic symbol in Melismos. The characteristic eanring wom by the Jesus has been interpreted by a passage of the Exodus and with verses of the Old Τ estament in relation to the Passover sacrifice which is read in churches on the holiday of Candlemas.

Commemorative Postal Issue: Christmas 2019 – 1st Size Commercial Letter Correios do Brasil
Description:
In the art created by Giana, the Christmas scene – represented by the star, the garland, the pine tree and the house number – has as its central figure the little girl carrying a letter addressed to Santa Claus. His image represents the innocent, unblocked, free and kind part that each person carries within, from which we can recover our most sincere desires. The idea of ​​this art is to say that a reality can come from a dream, from an intention, and that Correios, as a centenary institution, participates in this moment. The letter is the messenger who affirms the possibility of materializing our dreams in transcribing to paper. The dog represents loyalty and friendship. The shadows cast on the wall suggest universal values ​​such as love, unity, and peace, symbolized respectively by the heart, the family, and a little dove.

BASIC SERIES. HRH King Felipe VI

Correos issues its Basic Series again this year, with two stamps priced for standardised national and international postage, Rate A and B respectively, and offset-printed.

As is mandatory, the stamp shows the likeness of His Majesty King Felipe VI on a background of miniatures of the Spanish Crown, in line with previous years. On the lower right of the image we see the letter “ñ”, the logo of the Spain Brand.

The Basic Series is a type of philatelic series found among almost all the world’s postal operators. It is mainly characterised by very large or unlimited print runs, issued continuously over long periods. Its design is repeated year after year, with only the face value and the colour of the motif changing.

It is issued to meet all the possible postage needs of current postal rates. In monarchies, the stamps usually depict the king or queen, while in republics they show allegorical motifs or other symbols of the state, such as a coat of arms or flag.

The portrait of King Felipe VI appeared for the first time in the Basic Series on 19 January 2015, one year after Parliament proclaimed him King of Spain.

The king of Spain, as defined in Chapter II of our Constitution, is the head of state and a symbol of the country’s unity and permanence. He acts as an arbitrator and moderator of institutions and represents Spain in international relations, with an especially important role with former colonies.
