Israeli Stamp Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Arad

First Day of Issue: February 5, 2013 - Israel

Israel has issued a new postage stamp celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Arad, Israel's second pre-planned city.

Arad was founded on November 21, 1962 by a group of highly motivated Zionist pioneers who came to the Negev desert from all over Israel to make David Ben Gurion’s vision into a reality.

The stamp features a pair of cyclists on The Israel National Trail which runs through the heart of the city.
