Water is the Theme of New Israeli Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: February 5, 2013 - Israel

Israel has issued a new postage stamp titled "Water - The Source of Life."

Israel is situated in a water-scarce area, on the edge of a “desert belt.” Desalinated water currently constitutes some 40% of all water provided to cities and homes in Israel. Within a few years, more than 50% of all water utilized in Israel will be manufactured water.

The stamp design is based on the 64th Israel Independence Day poster issued by the Center for Public Diplomacy, Ministry of Information and Diaspora, in cooperation with the Israeli Government Advertising Agency.
