A postage stamp dedicated to the theme “Religion: The Pontifical Residence” has been cancelled and put into circulation by HayPost CJSC in the premises of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin.

The postage stamp with nominal value of 220 AMD is printed in Cartor printing house in France with a print-run of 60 000 pcs. The author of the stamp’s design is the designer Gevorg Poghosyan, HayPost said in a press release.

The postage stamp depicts the Pontifical Residence of the Catholicos of All Armenians. The background of the postage stamp presents the Holy Etchmiadzin Cathedral and the right and left parts of the postage stamp depict the Pontifical symbols.
