Peace and freedom are to be celebrated by a set of five stamps from the Royal Mail. To be issued on 2 May, the stamps mark the 125th birthday of the British Red Cross, the 1945 foundation of the United Nations and the end of the Second World War.

Design consultancy The Four Hundred has created first-day envelopes and a presentation pack for the issue.
