Description
December 10, 1973 marks the 25th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

These human rights consist of natural rights inherent in man and are based on the principles of freedom and equality.

Originating in ancient Greece, the concept of human rights has evolved in the course of human history. Particularly, the theory of natural law and the French Revolution have prompted the countries of the world to guarantee dignity of man and basic human rights by their constitutions.

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was drafted by a 18 member human rights committee headed by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. The declaration serves as the basis for international guarantees for basic human rights. To celebrate the silver anniversary of the declaration and to have the world reaffirm the supreme importance of human dignity and equality, the United Nations holds various worldwide programs.

The Ministry of Communications, joining the world in celebrating the anniversary and hoping that the event will enhance the respect for human rights, is issuing this commemorative stamp.
