2018 ARMISTICE Souvenir SheetΒ 

Commemorate the 100thΒ anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War with this pane of five PermanentTMΒ domestic stamps.

The stamps on this pane feature a white dove, a recognized symbol of peace, hovering over barbed wire strung across a battlefield. The wire is highlighted with a spot varnish special effect. On the pane, 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.
