A magnificent cover from Dubai!

Many thanks to Ganesh Potphode for this awesome GCC Stamp Exhibition FDC posted from Dubai, UAE!

To commemorate the 17th GCC Postage Stamp Exhibition held in Abu Dhabi from 4th to 9th April 2011, Emirates Post has issued a special stamp in the denomination of 150 Fils, along with a first day cover.
The GCC Stamp Exhibition was organized by Emirates Post in coordination with the Emirates Association to showcase rare and valuable stamps and postal history from the Gulf Cooperation Council, namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

The other two stamps on the cover were issued on 2nd Dec 2009 and 17th July 2007, to celebrate the 38th National Day of United Arab Emirates and to honor Sheikh Ahmed Mohamed Hasher Al Maktoum (Shooter) for winning the 1st UAE Olympic Gold Medalist held in Athens 2004 respectively.
