Significant Rivers of Singapore & Egypt

Singapore Post issued on October 17, 2011 a set of 2 stamps (probably the longest on Earth - 162mm × 30mm) to celebrate the strong bilateral relations between Singapore and Egypt.  A very original theme to illustrate this issue: Significant Rivers!

The Singapore River has accompanied the people of Singapore since 1819 when the country was created while the Egyptians have always depended on the Nile, the longest river in the world, ever since the time of the Pharaohs.

Special thanks to Terence for this amazing First Day Cover sent form Singapore Post Centre.  (=
