Universal Postal Union (UPU)

Established in 1874, the Universal Postal Union (UPU), with its headquarters in the Swiss capital Berne, is the second oldest international organization worldwide.

With its 192 member countries, the UPU is the primary forum for cooperation between postal sector players. It helps to ensure a truly universal network of up-to-date products and services.

In this way, the organization fulfils an advisory, mediating and liaison role, and provides technical assistance where needed. It sets the rules for international mail exchanges and makes recommendations to stimulate growth in mail, parcel and financial services volumes and improve quality of service for customers

Here is the symbol and after the stamps.






1974





More to come...

Here is an image of a stamp depicting the Hôtel des Postes and the UPU allegorical motif, designed by Pierette Lambert, engraved by Jules Piel, and issued by Monaco on May 3, 1963 to celebrate the centenary of the 1st International Postal Conference, which was held in Paris, Scott No. 541.
