Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik unveiled commemorative postage stamps on Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018.
The stamps aim at commemorating the 14th edition of World Cup in the state. “I would like to thank the Postal Department for producing beautiful stamps at the time of the Hockey World Cup,” Patnaik said.
Five postage stamps depicting players with hockey sticks, ball and a replica of world cup have been released along with a miniature sheet on the Hockey Men’s World Cup series.
The postage stamps, with Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 Bhubaneswar written in both English and Hindi, also feature hockey world cup mascot turtle Olly.
Chief Postmaster General, Odisha, Jaleswar Kahanr said a stall has been set up at the Kalinga Stadium from where citizens can get the new stamps. He said a state-level exhibition will be held at Keonjhar from December 15 to 17 to promote the stamps.
