Slovenia[edit]

  • The first meter stamps appeared in 1991 when Slovenia became an independent state as Yugoslavia disintegrated into its constituent parts.
  • For issues before independence see YUGOSLAVIA.
  • All stamps inscribed “SLOVENIJA” or “SLOVENIJE” or are without country name but have a Slovenian town mark.
  • The stamps are grouped according to usage:
