Here is a stamp depicting a bell at "Hacienda el Huique", an historic 17th century farm in Chile. The stamp is one of 15 different 9 peso values issued on July 11, 1984 by the country to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its regionalization process.

The green dot on the map on the left of the stamp shows the Liberator General Bernardo O'Higgins Region where the "Hacienda el Huique" is located.

This June 1950, one escudo value (Sc #268) of Cape Verde is from a set of two stamps of different designs issued to celebrate Holy Year. Interestingly, Portugal used two designs "omnibus style" for its colonies, but its own 1950 Holy Year stamps depict the Madonna of Fatima.

Mozambique's Holy Year "bells and pigeon" stamp is shown on page 6 of this thread.

On August 18, 1994 Mauritius issued a set of four stamps commemorating the 250th anniversary of the wreck of St. Geran. The 6 rupees value (Sc #792) of this set depicts the salvaged ship's bell.

From wrecksite.eu, "The most famous ship name in the history of Mauritius is the slaveship St. Geran which , while bringing colonists, was shipwrecked in 1744 on fringing reef of the island's northeast coast." Of the 110 passengers aboard, only 9 survived the sinking.

Here is the 2 p value (Sc #248) from Jersey's 1981-3 definitive series. The low values of this set (1/2 p - 50 p) depict coats of arms of Jersey families. This stamp, featuring 3 golden bells on a dark blue background, represents the La Cloche family.

From theislandwiki.com, "Cloche is French for bell, how the name became associated with a family is pure conjecture...So long has this family been located in Jersey that the names of its first members have not reached us."

This computer-vended, Frama-style (Swiss machine) stamp (Mi #11) of Liechtenstein is from a set of 11 "Municipal Coats of Arms" designs issued on December 4, 1995. Stamp shows the arms of Triesenberg.

Inscription on stamp says, "Triesenberg The colors blue and gold are reminiscent of the Walsers who immigrated to Triesenberg. The three-peaked hill alludes to the name of Triesenberg. The bell is the symbol of Saint Theodul, the Walser patron."

From britannica.com, "Walsers, descendants of immigrants from the Swiss canton of Valais who settled in Triesenberg at the end of the 13th century and continue to speak a particularly distinctive form of the (German) language."
