Tunisia issued in 2016 one stamp for the “60th anniversary of the Army’s creation” which shows in the background of the stamp a warship. The image I have is not so clear but the same ship is depict on the FDC and comparing this with photo ‘s on the internet it must be the first warship built in Tunisia the patrol boat Al ISTIKLAL. When the stamp was issued she was not yet commissioned, so the photo of the ship after the stamp was designed must be taken during a trial in 2016.
Not much details on the Al ISTIKLAL I could find on the net.

I believe she is built by Societe de Construction Industrielle et Navale (SCIN) in Sfax for the Tunisian Navy.
When laid down I could not find but building took two year.
21 August 2017 she was launched and named Al ISTIKLAL (Independence) in the Gulf of Tunis by Minister of Defence Farhalt Horchani. (launched as given on the web-site must I believe be commissioned.)
Tonnage or displacement 80 ton, dim. 26.5 x 5.8 m,
Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines each 3,200 hp., speed 25 knots.
Range 600 mile.
Armament: 1 – 20mm cannon and two machine guns.
Accommodation for 12 crew.

Tunisia 2016 250M sg?, scott?


The coat of arms of Kaliningrad Oblast was adopted on June 8, 2006. It is a heraldic shield divided into two parts. There is an image of a silver serrated fortress wall with an open gate and two silver crenelated towers emerging from the wall in the red upper field. There is the monogram of Empress Elizabeth of Russia of the middle of the 18th century in the shield between the towers. The lower undulating extremity is azure with five golden circles. The coat of arms is capped with an amber crown and framed by a ribbon of the Order of Lenin.

The coat of arms of Kaliningrad was approved on July 17, 1996. The coat of arms bears fragments of the old coat of arms of Königsberg. There is a silver ship with one sail and a two-pointed silver pendant with an azure St Andrew’s Cross on a mast sprouting below by three green leaves in the azure field. Golden bezants decreasing to the edges laid in a wavy belt are depicted in the extremity. The shield is framed by a ribbon of the Medal for the Capture of Königsberg. A sailboat on the coat of arms of Kaliningrad symbolizes the connection of the enclave territory of Kaliningrad with the rest of Russia.

The postage stamp depicts the coat of arms of Kaliningrad, and the souvenir sheet margins feature the coat of arms of Kaliningrad Oblast and a map of the Russian Federation. ... 31891.aspx
