Croatia 2015 Number 112 Day with Glow in Dark Printing  

Issue date 11 February 2015

The number 112 is an emergency number introduced in the European countries to provide overall help in cases of threatened health and lives of people as well as material goods and environment. 

The 112 System was operationally introduced in the Republic of Croatia on 11 February 2005 and to commemorate 10 years of operations, Croatian Post has issued a stamp depicting the number 112 overlapping the SOS (synonym for Save Our Souls)  which internationally means Call for Help. The number 112 on the stamp is printed with Phosphorescent ink which glows in the dark when the light is switched off.

The system is similar to the 911 numbers operational in the US and Canada regions.

11 February (hence number 112) was established as the European 112 Day by the European Parliament in 2009.
