About Stamp

The city of Calgary, Alberta, will serve as host to the XV Olympic Winter Games from February 13 to 28, 1988. Almost 2,500 athletes from more than 40 countries will compete in tests of skill and endurance in ten Olympic disciplines and three demonstration sports. Alpine skiers will challenge Mount Allan in the Kananaskis County wilderness, while the cross-country skiing and biathlon will take place at the Canmore Nordic Centre, situated close to Banff National Park. The other competitions will take place in Calgary at Canada Olympic Park, the Olympic Saddlehome, and the Olympic Oval. Pierre-Yves Pelletier, a Montreal designer, prepared the design of this stamp, the first in a series commemorating the Calgary Games. On a stylized map of southwestern Alberta, red dots indicate each of the five sites where the Olympic events will take place.
