Anniversaries & Events

50th Anniversary of the Cyprus Cancer Association:
This year, the Cyprus Cancer Association celebrates 50 years of contribution. The effort started in 1971, by a group of volunteers, with the late Dimitris Souliotis and Hakop Keheyan as its inspirers and pioneers. Their main purpose was to provide free care to patients with cancer experience. Today, the Association offers palliative care services at two of its Centres, "Arodafnousa" in Nicosia and "Evagoreio" in Limassol and  also in patients' homes throughout Cyprus. The "Origami Swallow" which is a symbol of hope, support and relief in difficult times, is dedicated to all those who stood by the Association throughout its course. Their support helps the Association to continue supporting our fellow humans with cancer. A kind care that comes from the heart.

60th Anniversary of Cyta:
The history of Cyta is intertwined with the history of Cyprus and its people. It was born together with the Republic of Cyprus, in order to give  the newly established State communication channels, to highlight its place on the international map and to keep step with every era. 

Its role has been crucial in the development of telecommunications and in the continuous development of the economy and prosperity of our country, in all sectors. 

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the beginning of its multidimensional course, Cyta looks forward, continuing to contribute substantially to the progress of its clients and our country, creating the future in communications.

"200 Years since the Greek Revolution"
The commemorative miniature of 1 euro depicts the famous work of Theodoros Vryzakis, painted in 1865 and located in the National Gallery – Alexandros Soutzos Museum, Athens. It is an oil painting on canvas, measuring 164x124 cm with the Metropolitan Germanos of Patras in front of the royal doors of Agia Lavra Monastery, blessing the flag of the Revolution held by one of the fighters wearing the traditional foustanella. The rest of the fighters raise one hand and bring the other to their hearts taking the oath to free Greece from slavery.

The 34-cent stamp illustrates in front of the Greek flag  the Cypriot Fighters of 1821, the Monument of Cypriot Fighters, located in the "Garden of Heroes" in Messolonghi. The monument was erected in 2006 at the expense of the Republic of Cyprus and is dedicated to all Cypriots who fought during the Greek Revolution of 1821 and especially during the Exodus of Messolonghi in April 1826. The monument illustrates Cyprus as a female figure holding two laurel wreaths.

The 64-cent stamp illustrates in front of the Greek flag  the Cypriot Fighters of 1821, the Mausoleum of the Cypriot Martyrs of 09 July 1821, located in the courtyard of the Panagia Faneromeni Church, Nicosia. The Mausoleum was made of Pentelic marble by the Athenian sculptor G. Demitriadis in 1930 and has the shape of a Byzantine ciborium. The holy relics of the Archbishop of Cyprus (1810-1821) Kyprianos, the metropolitans of Paphos, Kyrenia, Kiti, as well as other clergy and laity who were slaughtered by the Turks were deposited in its underground burial chamber.

North Cyprus (Turkish Cypriot) 19 November 2020
North Cyprus Stamps SG 2020 "Anniversaries and Events"
"50th Year of the Social Aid Stamp"
and "COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic"

This issue consists of 2 separate stamps.
Available in sheets of 8 stamps and on a single Post Office Official FDC, featuring the following:

"50th Year of the Social Aid Stamp":
On 23 March 1970, Turkish Communal Chamber, using the authorisation given by the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus, issued a set of 2 social aid stamps of 5 and 15 mills values. Turkish Postal Administration started to use them on 3 April 1970.
Values were shown with a symbol of a flower at the corner of the stamp.
Each flower leaf denotes 1 mill and were designed by Mr Fikri Direkoğlu.
Although the stamps were meant for funding social aid purposes (such as the construction of a home for the elderly in Gönyeli, or to aid refugees and families of incident victims, those killed or mained during conflict), they were actually used in postal services and on fiscal materials in the Turkish enclaves of the island, supplanting the stamps of the Republic of Cyprus.
In order to avoid interference or confiscation by the Greek Cypriot authorities, cancellations were made not with the normal handstamp but with the straight or zigzag metal bars.
The datestamp of the Republic of Cyprus was applied on a blank space on the envelope. Envelopes bearing those stamps were delivered by means of the taxi and bus companies.

"COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic":
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which is a respiratory pathogen.
The World first learned of this new virus from cases in Wutan, People's Republic of China on 31 December 2019. Strict precautions were enacted in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus that represents a "good model" for other countries in the world with regard to dealing with the current COVID-19 pandemic, shortly after the identification of the first positive case of SARS-CoV-2 on 9 March 2020 (a female German tourist who had arrived on 8 March 2020) "Patient Zero".
In addition to the precautions taken, TV channels, universities and associations are continually sharing informative videos and information to increase awareness of the current outbreak and the role of each individual in the country in preventing further transmission.
An emergency hospital that was funded by Turkey, whose construction started in August, is planned to get operational within this month. The hospital has six operation theatres and a 100-bed capacity for intensive care patients.
