Flag of Tibet (Government of Tibet in exile website),
forbidden today in the streets of Paris.
All this reminded me of a former affair: in 2005, for the 70th birthday of the Dalai Lama, Austrian Post prepared a official stamp issue. Jean-Louis Emmenegger's article published in L'Écho de la timbrologie of June 2005 told that the Chinese diplomacy was very efficient to cancel the issue. Even a private citizen's order of a personalized stamp on the same topic was cancelled by the government even if its postal authority and printer had already accepted the print.
