Rejected petition We need a commemorative stamp to celebrate 70th anniversary of The Windrush

The Royal Mail will not support 70th anniversary of The Windrush by issuing a commemorative stamp.They only recognise anniversaries which are 50,100 or 150 years.Why should we wait until 2048? We need the government to support Windrush Day & The Royal Mail to develop a series of Windrush Day stamps.

More details

The image of the Windrush ship was voted by the public as one of the 100 most iconic symbols of British history in 2011. Also the ship was used as part of the opening Ceremony of Olympic Games and Cultural Olympiad in 2012. There has also been a growing campaign to promote the idea of a Windrush Day as national holiday to celebrate the contribution of migrant communities and cultural diversity.
