First Stamps – Bangladesh

Although, a set of 8 stamps was issued on 29 July 1971 in anticipation of the creation of the newly independent country, a set of three stamps by the sovereign Bangladesh were issued on 20th December 1971 with the overprint “Bangladesh Liberated” both in English and Bengali. 

One of the three stamps with the map of Bangladesh is shown above, while the other two stamps bore the portrait of Sheikh Mujib ur Rehman and the Support Bangladesh theme.
