On 18 October 2019, the United Nations Postal Administration will issue a new personalized stamp sheet to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the UNPA in Geneva. On 11 December 1968, an agreement between the United Nations and the Swiss Postal Telephone and Telegraph Enterprise (PTT) enabled the Geneva office of UNPA to open. The first UN stamps in Swiss Francs were issued on 4 October 1969.
The background design features the flag alley leading to the main entrance of the Palais des Nations, Geneva and pays tribute as well to “100 years of multilateralism at Geneva”. The stamp sheet consists of 10 stamps in the denomination of CHF 1.50 with images of the Palais des Nations, Geneva. The tabs of the stamps feature the restoration project of the Celestial Sphere.
