First Olympic QR-code Stamp

Laura Walden reports on the website, "The Sochi 2014 organizing committee has launched the first Olympic QR-code stamp for the Games. The innovative stamp was coordinated with the Publishing and Trading Center 'Marka', the Russian Post Office and was supported by TOP Sponsor Samsung Electronics and features the Sochi logo as well as a matrix code linking viewers back to the Games’ website."
Dmitry Chernyshenko, head of Sochi 2014, is quoted as saying, "Today we have taken a step into the future with the launch of Sochi 2014 stamp with QR code incorporated, which is the first of its kind both in the history of Russia and the Olympic Movement. The new stamp will really add some sparkle to the Sochi 2014 Philatelic Program and build on a range of distinctive and innovative Sochi 2014 souvenirs, such as 3D credit cards, coins and the Games Mascots!"

The 2014 Winter Olympics, officially the XXII Olympic Winter Games, will be celebrated February 7- 23, 2014, in Sochi, Russia.
