The governments of India and Israel have jointly issued two commemorative stamps to mark 20 years of diplomatic relations as a sign of cooperation between the countries.

The theme of the stamps is "Festival of Lights" - Israel's stamp features the menorah with the word "Zion" inscribed inside a magen david star, and India's shows a row of lamps, representing the Indian holiday of Deepavali.



The menorah featured on the stamp was inspired by the wooden menorah used by the Jewish community in Bombay, India.

Israel and India established full diplomatic relations in 1992.
