The postage stamp tributes to Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela died peacefully at his Johannesburg home on Thursday after a prolonged lung infection.

Mandela rose from rural obscurity to challenge the might of white minority apartheid government – a struggle that gave the 20th century one of its most respected and loved figures. He was among the first to advocate armed resistance to apartheid in 1960, but was quick to preach reconciliation and forgiveness when the country’s white minority began easing its grip on power 30 years later.

He always be one of the most historical persons in the world.

During the years, lots of country make stamps with Nelson Mandela.
