On the occasion of Our Lord’s Nativity Feast, Romfilatelia marks this important event for Christianity through the postage stamps issue Christmas 2019. The two stamps of the issue, both with the face value of Lei 1.70, reproduce images from the manuscript “Akathist Hymn of the Mother of God”, part of the patrimony of the Romanian Academy Library, which represent the miniatures “Our Lord’s Birth” and “Magi’s Star”. From the same manuscript, the miniature “Adoration of the Magi”was reproduced on the First Day Cover of the issue, as well as the miniature “Madonna and Child” on the perforated souvenir sheet of the issue, with the face value of Lei 28.50.
