BELIZE

Belize  is a country on the eastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in Central America whose official language is English, though Belizean Creole (Kriol) and Spanish are also commonly spoken. Belize is bordered on the north by Mexico, on the south and west by Guatemala, and on the east by the Caribbean Sea. Its mainland is about 290 km (180 mi) long and 110 km (68 mi) wide. Originally part of the British Empire, it shares a common colonial history with other Anglophone Caribbean countries. From 1862 to 1973 the area went by the name of British Honduras. It became an independent Commonwealth realm in 1981, retaining Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.


These are my first covers from Belize ! These two beautiful covers with blue UPU barcode label came today with perfect cancellation. The philatelic bureau did a very good job. The covers posted on April 20, and I received in my hands on May 05, 2016. Belize has limited stamps but all stamps are thematic , mainly flora and fauna. Thank You Holger for the beautiful stamps.
