90th anniversary of Tartu Peace Treaty

Date of Issue : 02 February 2010

The Tartu Peace Treaty was signed on 2 February 1920 after two months of talks between delegations of the Republic of Estonia and Soviet Russia. The treaty ended the Estonian War of Independence (1918–1920) and officially confirmed the independence won on battlefields. By the treaty Russia voluntarily and for all time gave up “all rights of sovereignty that Russia had over the people and land of Estonia”. Jaan Poska, head of the Estonian delegation at the peace talks, had great services in negotiating favourable terms for his country.

My First Estonia FDC in 2010. The special cancellation looks very nice.
