NatWest Island Games XVI Stamp Booklet

NatWest Island Games XVI

Since 1985, the Island Games have become an important fixture in the sporting calendars of island nations around the world. Originally intended as a one-off sporting celebration, over the years the Games have grown in both popularity and stature to become a prestigious, biennial multi-sports event.

Having last hosted the event in 1997, the island of Jersey is proud to be home to the Island Games once again. From 27 June to 3 July 2015, Jersey’s Island Games volunteers or ‘Games Makers’ will welcome around 3,000 competitors  and 1,000 officials from 23 visiting islands. A sponsorship deal with NatWest means that this year’s event will be known as the NatWest Island Games.

Fourteen postcard stamps have been created to represent each of the sporting categories. A prestige booklet has also been produced to commemorate this significant event and contains five exclusive panes of stamps, additional photography and information about the Games.
