Belgium 2014 Earth Hour MS with hidden image visible under UV light

Issue date 13 March 2014

Belgium Post celebrated "Earth Hour" with the issue of a miniature sheet with 5 stamps featuring a Globe and is accompanied with a mini LED key ring with BPost logo on it giving out a special dark light (UV). When the LED key ring is switched on, the Brussels skyline becomes visible on the mini stamp sheet. The stamp was designed by Kris Maes.

Earth Hour is a global WWF (formerly known as World Wildlife Fund) climate change initiative. It is an event that aims to create awareness of people taking responsibility towards a sustainable future by turning the lights off. Millions of people around the world switch off their lights for Earth Hour at 8.30 pm (20:30 hour) in their local times on the last Saturday of March each year.
