Postage Stamps Honor Marseille, France

First Day of Issue: January 12, 2013 - France

France has issued a set of four postage stamps honoring Marseille, the 2013 European Capital of Culture. These stamps show the city illuminated at night.

Each year, the European Union designates one city as the European Capital of Culture. The city chosen then organizes a series of cultural events with a strong European dimension to be held throughout the year.
