India was one of the first states to recognise the Federal Republic of Germany diplomatically after the Second World War with several years of successful cooperation following the recognition.
A little over two years ago, India and Germany agreed to issue a joint stamp. This joint issue consists of an Indian stamp and a German stamp. With the simple design, the two countries come together to form a cohesive new whole. The stamp was designed by Matthias Wittig, a Berlin-based graphic designer, and the stamp’s unusual face value at 170 cents was specifically chosen as it is the exact postage required to send an international compact letter weighing up to 50g to India.
