A 10 Pfennig (i.e. 1/100 Mark) postage stamp of the German Democratic Republic (aka West Germany or DDR) issued in 1969 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of “League of Red Cross Societies” (now  IFRC), founded in 1919 in Paris. The image shows the three protecting emblems used at that time: the Red Cross, that was adopted in the 1st Geneva Convention of 1864; the Red Crescent and the Red Lion and Sun, both officially recognized in the Geneva Convention of 1919. This latter was used by Persian Empire until Iranian revolution of 1979 and, although never officially abrogated, since 1986 is no longer mentioned in the statutes of the Red Cross Movement.
