1996 Istanbul Exhibition

1996 Istanbul Exhibition

"1996 Butterfly - Istanbul World Philatelic Exhibition Cover"

As promised in my previous blog, I present you the 1996 Butterfly Booklet on Istanbul World Philatelic Exhibition Cover. The exhibition was held from 27 September - 06 October 1996 which attracted 4,000 participants, including Pos Malaysia.

The International Philately Federation Congress was also held in conjunction of this World Philatelic Exhibition. The exhibitions opened at the Lutfi Kirdar International Convention Centre and the Harbiye Military Museum and Culture Village. About 700 philatelists from all over the world will exhibit their collections. The exhibition played an important role in promoting Turkey abroad.

"Exhibition Cancellation"

The cancellation resembled the logo of the Istanbul 1996. Is this Jawi character, Istanbul building structure or ... I am not sure.
