Heraldic First Day Covers issued by the International Olympic Committee

For the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, the IOC issued a large series of FDCs from countries that issued stamps for the Olympics. For each country one FDC was made, showing an heraldic design and one of the stamps.

The heraldic design was rarely identical to the national arms of the country, but most often a new design, which sometimes did not even bear a resemblance with the official arms.

Every FDC had an inlet describing the country, its history in the Olympics as well as the base of the heraldic design.

Below 10 countries with a new design and the inlet are shown. Click on the image to read the text properly. The other 85 can be seen in the IOC Category.
