Pursuant to the rules of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the theme and design of a postage stamp must be closely related with the cultural identity of the issuing country, help spread culture and peace, be free of politics, and must not be offensive towards a person or a country.
When it comes to anniversaries or events, stamps usually celebrate major milestones such as 100, 125, 150, etc. Postage stamps of living persons are normally only in case of presidents and Olympic medalists.
