Since the start of the Olympic Games is imminent it seems a good moment to highlight that the 1948 incarnation was accompanied by several postage stamps issued by the Royal Mail. One of the many designs submitted, this one crafted by Harrison & Sons, was in Esperanto.
Unfortunately it wasn't one of the four that eventually were produced but it makes for a nice, topical theme all the same.
