Postmarks, postage stamps, and postcards featuring the Convention
A tentative beginning to a complex work of historical and archival reconstruction . . .
Probably the first postmark using the Convention as its motif -- the post office of Switzerland on the occasion of the 4th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties in Montreux on Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) in 1990. The Château de Chillon on the left, and the bird from the old Ramsar logo in the middle.
This is the postmark in use in the post office of Secovlje, Slovenia, between 2nd and 12th February. More information is available from Posta Slovenije.
