2020 Vatican Earth Day.png

Earth Day originated in 1970 as a way to underscore the need for conservation of the Earth’s natural resources and is celebrated by the United Nations on 22 April each year. In 2020, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary and coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the encyclical Laudato si’, the Vatican marks for the first time what is the largest environmental event on the planet. The philatelic mini sheet of two values issued for the occasion (0.30 and 1.10 euros), designed by the artist Joyce Chiarella, aims to seek and simultaneously represent everywhere the beauty and harmony of creation: in the forms, in the sounds and colors of nature, but also in the face of a child with its innocent gaze admiring the surroundings. In the upper left sun shines on the coat of arms of Pope Francis, while the moon, on the right, reflects the title of the issue. This celebration aims to remind us that creation is a gift we have received from God and, for this reason, as the Holy Father teaches in Laudato si’, we have a mission to care for it and to protect it.

On the 1.10Euro stamp is a stylized sailing yacht depict. ... ietto.html
