Canada Post Issued Eid Stamp 2021

13 May 2021  Thu

Canada Post has issued its third stamp in celebration of Eid on 22nd April. Canada’s first Eid stamp was issued in 2017 and the second was released in 2020.

Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast) and Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) are two of the most important religious holidays in Islam. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the most sacred month in the Islamic lunar calendar. The crescent moon is a powerful symbol of the Islamic faith. Both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha begin when the new moon is seen.

The new non-denominated permanent-rate stamp features a stylized evening scene as viewed through a decorative arched window. A large crescent moon and nine five-point stars appear in the sky above gentle rolling hills in the background.
