Nuclear Free 1995

In August 1945, the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese cities were destroyed and thousands of civilians killed; countless more died of radiation. The nuclear age had dawned.

Nuclear weapons have never been used in anger since, but the world has shuddered at the ugly mushroom shape of test blasts and once or twice has teetered on the edge of nuclear catastrophe. Today, with the end of the Cold War, humans have stepped back from the brink but the United States, Britain, the former Soviet Union, France and China have stockpiles of weapons and several other countries are capable of producing nuclear weapons - or may already have done so.

New Zealand Post issued this special stamp featuring the international peace symbol to communicate New Zealand's opposition to nuclear weapons and nuclear testing, and its hope that the world will one day be nuclear free.

Nuclear Free - $1.00
Featuring the international peace symbol to communicate New Zealand's opposition to nuclear weapons and tests.

Cartoonists

...........in order to make an anti-nuclear statement.

 "let’s just stop thinking about it and get on with it"

Garrick Tremain, Jim Hubbard, Eric Heath and Burton Silver, four of this country’s best-known cartoonists, were asked for their interpretation of the theme 'Kiwis taking on the world', the result added up to much more than four highly original and entertaining cartoons. It is also a stamp issue in which every person in New Zealand can see a little of themselves and their fellow Kiwis.

Garrick Tremain - 40c
New Zealanders have a real need to see how the rest of the world lives.
So much so, in fact, that the great Overseas Experience ("OE") is a New Zealand institution. Garrick Tremain has captured this determination using another Kiwi icon, the buzzy bee. Here, the flightless Kiwi flies up from down under to be part of the big, wide world.

Jim Hubbard - $1.00
There is no reason on earth why Kiwis shouldn’t have the rest of the planet for breakfast - particularly if, like Jim Hubbard, you see the world as an egg. The cartoon reflects a certain Kiwi bravado - that bit of our national psyche that says "let’s just stop thinking about it and get on with it".

Eric Heath - $1.50
Competitiveness, particularly in the area of sport, is very much a New Zealand trait, according to Eric Heath. To a Kiwi, the size, strength and reputation of the opposition count for nothing. So, we happily go after opposition that would intimidate others. Here, in an obvious reference to Team New Zealand, a rugged yachtie skips past the foundering boat of his competitor, the world.

Burton Silver - $1.80
New Zealanders tend to try and justify their role in the world, according to Burton Silver. Perhaps that is why Bogor has gone to the lengths of clear-felling a forest in order to make an anti-nuclear statement. The interesting and paradoxical dilemma he now faces is that the rest of the world won’t see his far-reaching statement.

International Year of Peace 1986

Costa Rica is a small country, bordered by Nicaragua and Panama, and on either side by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.  Small it may be, but it was Costa Rica's initiative that saw the International Year of Peace first proposed in the United Nations General Assembly in 1981.  The following year, a proposal to observe the calendar year of 1986 as the official United Nations International Year of Peace was adopted by consensus.

During 1985 a nationwide design competition was held to obtain designs for the stamp issue.  The winning designs were seen as strongly promoted the message of peace.  They incorporated a diverse group of peace symbols that would be recognised by the widest possible spectrum of the community:  the dove; the 'tree of life', the United Nations Year of Peace logo; and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament symbol.
