Last 7 July, the Colombian national post office issued a postage stamp for the participation of Colombia in the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Rio de Janeiro 2016. 

The stamp and the philatelic sheet represent the spirit of fair play and the design, made by artist Pablo Lopera, consists of a dove of peace with indigenous-like patterns.

During the opening ceremony of the Olympics, the Colombian delegation will carry both the National Flag and the Flag of Peace, as a sign of support for the peace talks.
