2018 ARMISTICE IssueΒ 

Commemorate the 100thΒ anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War with this single stamp from a booklet of 10 PermanentTMΒ domestic stamps.

The stamps in this booklet feature a white dove, a recognized symbol of peace, hovering over barbed wire strung across a battlefield. The barbed wire is highlighted with a spot varnish special effect. On the back of the booklet, a photograph from the City of Toronto Archives depicts armistice celebrations on downtown streets.

After more than four years of bitter fighting, an armistice between the Allies and Germany ended the war at β€œthe eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.

Armistice Day was observed on a Monday in early November from 1919 until 1931, when a campaign led by the Canadian Legion resulted in a fixed date of November 11 and a new name: Remembrance Day. Every year since then, people have come together to observe two minutes of silence in honour of all the brave men and women who have served their country in times of war, military conflict and peace.
