First Day of Issue: January 28, 2013 - Netherlands
The Netherlands has issued a set of ten new postage stamps celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Royal Netherlands Land Development Society.
Founded in 1888, the Royal Netherlands Land Development Society was established by private individuals for the development of agricultural land, reforestation of sandy areas, and improvement of employment.
The legacy of the Royal Netherlands Land Development Society will be in the hands of two organisations: ARCADIS, an international enterprise that provides project management, advice and engineering services for improving accessibility, sustainability and the quality of living, and KNHM, an organisation that helps residents improve their neighbourhood, district, village or town.
Each of the ten stamps features a photograph of one of the projects from one of these two organizations.
