Great Britain : Booklet 'Key dates for London 2012' (Type: Booklet I)
London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Definitives - 5 January 2012

To herald the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London Royal Mail will be issuing four distinctive new Definitives. They bear the official Emblems of the Games of the XXX Olympiad and the XIV Paralympic Games. 

The four elements of the Olympic Emblem (outlines of the numerals of 2012) are designed to accommodate different colours and imagery.  The 2012 Paralympic Games Emblem is composed of the same elements as the one for the Olympiad, but features three ‘agitos’ (asymmetrical crescent shapes denoting movement) instead of the Olympic Rings and the words ‘Paralympic Games’ at the bottom right. 

6 x 1st class stamp booklets will be issued in two different types.

One shows the Key Dates for London 2012, the other includes a quote from Seb Coe who leads the London Organising Committee. The stamp arrangement in the two books is different.

Identified as Booklet I and Booket II.

The booklet stamps are printed by Walsall Security Printers.

Each stamp size is 20 x 24 mm.
