NORTH CYPRUS STAMPS - 6 December 2022

"Anniversaries and Events" (Yıl Dönümleri ve Olaylar)

 

Comprising of 3 stamps in the set, each with a different value.
Available as a set of 3 stamps, Post Office Offial FDC and a set of Full Sheets (3 stamps per sheet).
 

"Centenary of the Great Victory" (Büyük Zafer'in 100 Yili).
Türkiye was occupied by allied forces after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War (1914-1918). The occupation prompted Türkiye's War of Independence in 1919, during which Turkish forces, led by Gen. Mustafa Kemal, eventually ousted the occupiers from Anatolia.
Turkish forces fought the last battle, Dumlupina, from 26 to 30 August in 1922, when Greek forces were decisively defeated. By the end of the year, all foreign forces had left the territories that would collectively become the new Republic of Türkiye in 1923.
30 August the Victory Day, is celebrated with joy across Türkiye and in north Cyprus. The day also honours the founder of modern Türkiye, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The main ceremony is held at Atatürk's mausoleum in Ankara.

"Observer Membership to the Organization of Turkic States".
November 11 2022 has been a historic day for the Turkish Cypriot people and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, four days before the 39th anniversary of the proclamation of the Republic, has been accepted as an observer member of the Organization of Turkic States, whis is a rising power day by day.
Obtaining observer status at an international organization with our Constitutional name, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus for the first time, has added a special meaning to this historic day.
The successful conclusion of the observer membership process to the Organization of Turkic States confirms that the new two-state vison of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Turkey on the Cyprus problem is compatible with regional and global conjuncture.
