The Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Gerardo Peñalver, the Vice Minister of Communications Ana Julia Morinet and the president of the Post Office Business Group of Cuba, Carlos Asencio, made official the release of the new stamp, whose design was in charge of Roberto Ruiz and has a value of seven pesos (national currency).
The stamp has a representative image of the Plaza de la Revolución, where the Second Declaration of Havana took place in front of a massive popular concentration. In addition, it graphically illustrates the impact of the speech by the historical leader, Fidel Castro.
In the act it transpired that the cache of the special envelope of the first day represents Cuba and its projection towards the world.
Likewise, the red canceller shows a raised fist, a symbol of the support shown by the entire Cuban people before the Second Declaration.
According to Deputy Foreign Minister Josefina Vidal, who was invited to the meeting, the First and Second Declarations of Havana represent milestones in national and American history due to their great political significance.
They are a dignified response to the machinations of the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS) against Cuba, she affirmed.
