Commemorative Issue: Anorthosis Ammochostos Centenary
Anorthosis was established in Ammochostos in 1911 and this year it celebrates 100 years of historic, sporting and cultural achievement. It was and continues to be a beacon of progress and a contributor to the Cyprus community and in particular the national issue. It takes a leading role and has assisted in encouraging sports through the various team sections it operates. The Anorthosis Association displacement due to the Turkish invation in 1974 did not put an end to its brilliant course; from its temporary base in Larnaka, it has succeeded in progressing in sport gaining an international reputation. Therefore, Anorthosis is undoubtedly an unyielding ambassador of Cyprus. Its main vision remains its return to its ancestral land.
