2 Beautiful covers from Turkey!

Today, I would like to share with you guys 2 beautiful covers from Turkey. Courtesy of fellow blogger, Ahmet Demir. Thank you!

The 2 rose stamps franked on both matching covers (drawn by Ahmet himself) belong to a set of 4 lovely stamps from the " Flowers" series, issued in 1960.
The 4 stamps franked on the extreme right corner of both covers were issued on 16th March 2009 to commemorate the 5th World Water Forum. These stamps make up a set.
The last stamp franked on the second cover is from the Mustafa Kemal Atatürk definitive series, issued in 2009. There are 10 denominations in this set.
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881-1938), Turkish soldier, nationalist leader, and statesman, who founded the republic of Turkey and was its first president (1923-1938). The name Atatürk (Father Turk) was bestowed upon him in 1934 by the Grand National Assembly as a tribute for his unique service to the Turkish nation.
Both covers were postmarked in Pasaport Izmir, Turkey on 09th October 2009 and took 7 days to reach me.

That's all folks! Enjoy your weekend!
