Theme: Bahrain's Insurance Day
Date of issue : 26th Mar 2013

Image

Bahrain Insurance Day is annually celebrated in March, in appreciation of the efforts of the insurance industry that aims to position Bahrain to be a regional insurance hub.

Bahrain Insurance Association (BIA), received its charter in 1993 and became operational in 1994. Currently the BIA is under the umbrella of the Ministry of Social Affairs, comprising of local and foreign insurance companies, reinsurance, brokers and service providers.

The concept of launching the stamp on the 26th Mar 2013, the occasion of Bahrain Insurance Day is in line with the BIA objective to increase insurance awareness amongst the general public.

Nice thread, they are beautiful, the recent new issues of the Kingdom of Bahrain, have never come across them, so it's refreshing to find them so attractive. Perhaps, subscribing to their new issues is not such a bad idea after all.

Has there been any stamps, at least recently, celebrating Ramadan and Eid?

Saifbeg:

I have only seen an Eid stamp from Saudi Arabia, never from Bahrain, and then only one (2013). The Hajj is, of course, commemorated often on Saudi, Kuwaiti and Omani stamps.
