20 Years of German Unity ...

Many thanks Igor for this nice pre-paid cover of Bilateral Philatelic Exhibition ("Bilaterale Briefmarkenausstellung") between Germany and Poland, held at Frankfurt (Oder), from 24 to 26 Sept ;-)

On cover, there were pre-printed, self-adhesive and gummed stamps that commemorated the 20 years of German Unity ("20 Jahre Deutsche Einheit"), with special cancellation on Oct 3rd, from the German capital of Berlin, in black, red and yellow, with wordings of "20 Jahre Deutsche Einheit".

German Unity Day (German: Tag der Deutschen Einheit) is the national day of Germany, celebrated on 3 October as a public holiday. It commemorates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990.
