Saudi Post issues new stamp to commemorate Hajj 2018

JEDDAH: The Saudi Post Corporation has released a special memorial stamp for this year’s Hajj season, and for the first time has issued three riyals and five riyals stamps.
Saudi Post President, Eng. Mohammad Al-Jabbar said the corporation issues memorial stamps to document important events witnessed in the Kingdom in various fields.
He noted how stamps are a communicative means that reach countries and people around the world, and how it is important to highlight the Kingdom’s achievements, national efforts and historical moments through their issuance.
The stamp design was crated with the slogan of this year’s Hajj season, “The Kingdom embraces the world,” alongside a verse from the Holy Qur’an that reads: “And proclaim that the people shall observe Hajj pilgrimage...” [Qur’an 22:27]
