Iraq issues stamps with images of Christian churches

For the first time ever, the Iraqi post service has issued a series of stamps depicting churches in the country. The collection contains eight stamps portraying Iraqi historical churches that belong to different Christian communities.

An Iraqi artist, Saad Ghazi designed the collection. The central post service of the country printed and distributed four thousand copies from the first series.

The national post service decided to print stamps with the photos of Christian churches, as a gesture towards the Christian people of the country.

The present government is doing its best to come closer to Christian inhabitants. On the 10th of August, the president of Iraq, Mustafa al Kadhimi met Louis Raphael Sako, the Chaldean Patriarch, and assured him of his support. During this meeting, the president told Patriarch Sako; “Iraq is the country of every Iraqi person, Christians are original children of the country.”
