Monaco Stamp Honors the Red Cross

First Day of Issue: February 18, 2013 - Monaco

Monaco has issued a new postage stamp celebrating the 150th anniversary of the International Red Cross.

The Red Cross was born at the initiative of one man, Henry Dunant. He helped injured soldiers at the Battle of Solferino in 1859, and then encouraged political leaders to take greater measures to protect war victims.
