A Lovely Hungarian Cover

Good day! Just to share this lovely cover that I received from an eBayer.
The beautiful stamp affixed on the front of the cover was issued by Magyar Posta to commemorate 2012 being the "Year of active ageing and solidarity between generations". Declared by the European Union, the aim is to enhance understanding and the exchange of experience between young people and older generations and to strengthen family bonds. Society’s attention must be drawn to that old age can be lived with active participation, remaining part of society and also to that young people must be encouraged with different programmes to find a common language with the elderly.
On the back are two stamps issued in 2008 and 2011 respectively. The main motif of the right stamp shows Saint Martin as a bishop in the centre of the design. Other parts of the composition depicts events from the life of Saint Martin.
Obviously, the left stamp was issued to commemorate the Games of the XXIX Olympiad Beijing.
