European Women’s Handball Championship marked by Magyar Posta

November 15th, 2014 is glad to inform that Magyar Posta issued a special stamp to mark the European Women’s Handball Championship, which is being jointly organized by Hungary and Croatia. The design of the stamp shows an action scene from a match and the national flags of the countries hosting the European Championship.

A special feature of the issue is that the stamps in a sheet are arranged alternately rotated by column. The stamp was designed by the graphic artist Ágnes Berta and produced by the ANY Security Printing Company. The items were put into circulation on the 6th of November.

Hungary and Croatia are jointly hosting the 2014 European Women’s Handball Championship between 7 and 21 December. The winners of the competition will secure the right to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2015 World Women’s Handball Championship. The matches will be staged in three cities in Hungary (Budapest, Debrecen, Győr) and at three venues in Croatia (Osijek, Varaždin and Zagreb). The final will be held at the Papp László Sports Arena in Budapest.
