Dominican Republic Postage Stamp

Dominican Republic postage stamp Blue Star of David

In 1998 the Dominican Republic issued a postage stamp that marks 50 years of Israeli independence. Blue Star of David on white background is located in the center of the stamp. Maybe the reason behind the issuing of this stamp is connected to the Dominican Republic’s acceptance of Jews fleeing Hitler who had been refused entry by other countries during the Holocaust.
