25th anniversary, Romanian Intelligence Service Souvenir Sheet

25th anniversary, Romanian Intelligence Service

The Romanian Intelligence Service came into being 25 years ago, as an institution whose main purpose was to defend the rule of law and the national values achieved during the bloody events of December 1989. On the occasion of the institution’s 25th anniversary, Romfilatelia introduces into circulation the postage stamp issue INTELLIGENCE SAFEGUARDING DEMOCRACY: 25 years, Romanian Intelligence Service, consisting of a stamp and a souvenir sheet. 

The missions of the Romanian Intelligence Service were directed towards the primary objective of safeguarding national security, by protecting democratic values and promoting Romania's national interests, as well as preserving the citizens’ rights and freedoms, and upholding the rule of law.

Among the tasks accomplished by SRI, we can mention the collection of information in order to defend the Constitution, protect economic and social security, counter potential foreign espionage, prevent and combat terrorism.

The stamp of the souvenir sheet with the face value of lei 14.50 reproduces in the background the Romanian tricolour flag, over which is superposed the binary code of the virtual world, containing in contrasting red colour, the sequence 11001; this is the codified translation of 25, representing the anniversary of the Romanian Intelligence Service.

The round perforation of the stamp and its layout become a universal seal, bearing the emblems of the Romanian Intelligence Service and the years of existence, 1990 - 2015.

The composition of the souvenir sheet joins powerful symbols of the Romanian spirit, the Sphinx of Bucegi and a fragment of a carved gate from the Maramures region, along with a symbolic mark that harmoniously combines aspiration, continuity and lastingness.

The surface of the inner circle representing the logo of the Romanian Intelligence Service, and the words Intelligence safeguarding democracy are visible in UV light spectrum.

The organisational creed of the Romanian Intelligence Service is based on values among of which the most important are patriotism, honour and professionalism.

In fact, its main value, patriotism, is also engraved in the official logo of the institution - Patria a priori.
