Europe 2012 stamps from VATICAN

Stamp Name:Visit-Europe 2012
"Visit..." is the theme chosen by Post Europe for this year's European postal stamps issue. The choice of this wide-ranging theme gives members of the postal association full freedom in interpreting it, whether looking at topics such as travel for tourism or culture, among the many possibilities.
The images chosen by the Vatican Philatelic Office for this stamp issue include the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, symbol of Christianity and destination of religious and cultural pilgrimage for millions of people. Another image is the dove in the window above the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter's Basilica, a masterful work by Bernini symbolizing the Holy Spirit.
