         50th Anniversary of the ILO -1969
The set of three Dominican stamps bordered by Flags of member-nations of the ILO. There are a total of sixty (60) Flags. Possible clues are given in ink. You have only to say whether the clues are right or wrong!

The International Labour Organization (ILO) emerged with the League of Nations from the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. It was founded to give expression to the growing concern for social reform after World War I, and the conviction that any reform had to be conducted  at an international level. In 1946, the ILO became the first specialized agency associated with
the newly formed United Nations Organization. On its 50th anniversary
in 1969, ILO was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Czechoslovakia issued two stamps to honour the PRAGA-1962 World Stamp Exhibition. My friend Mr Kenneth Sequeira from Dubai writes, “The first World Stamp Exhibition - PRAGA 1962 - was held in the year of the 75th anniversary of organised philately in Czechoslovakia under the slogan "For Friendship between Nations and to Strengthen Peace on Earth." It took place from 18 August to 2 September 1962 in the Industrial Palace (Congress Palace) and in the then quite new Brussels Pavilion in the Prague Exhibition Centre (then called the Julius Fučík Culture and Leisure Park)”.
