Lietuvos Paštas is joining the initiative Lietuva 4.000.000 and announces a contest. 100 people who have contributed the most to the creation of the global Lithuania will be featured on a special postage stamp unit. This is the first time that the postage stamp is decorated with not the most famous faces from Lithuania’s past, but with people who live, create and unify Lithuania now. Your face can also land on the postage stamp!
