Duhový ( rainbow ) / 虹の道

March 1, 2012

1987 Czechoslovakia
Cyclocross World Championship

There is another stamp on the theme of rainbow colours and cyclocross.  This time, intaglio printed Black plus three colours are used – green is made with Yellow and Blue, Light Blue is made by dots of Blue and the Grey… oh, no, looks like Grey, but is Silver.  Two years before their Gentle Revolution, the Post Office had a generous budget for popular sports of the country.

I like these Czechoslovakian intaglio stamps with gravure colours added – simple and free minded drawings.

    nice stamp ! I like the fact that he wears the national shirt on this stamp !
    Btw, Belgium isn’t that strong anymore in track cycling but they are still (and by far) the best nation in cyclo-cross !
    They issued this stamp in 2002 (with a small reference to the rainbow shirt) : http://d2cdm2jef6kgc7.cloudfront.net/stamps/2002/BE/BE004.02.jpg
