Correos issues a new stamp dedicated to sport, this time to celebrate the centenary of the Spanish Federation of Mountain Sports and Climbing (FEDME).
In 2022, the FEDME commemorates the centenary under the slogan "a year to share", which identifies its philosophy of opening the federative world to society, and sharing with all the people who practice mountain sports its values, objectives and commitments.
Celebrating one hundred years is a historic milestone for any entity. It is an opportunity to look back, but we also want to reflect on the present and it is time and place to project and build the federation we want and need on the values of mountaineering.
On August 1, 1922, at the Madrid headquarters of the R. S. And. The first meeting of the Spanish Mountaineering Federation took place in Peñalara. Today, the FEDME, is the fifth Spanish federation by number of federated with 248,000 (year 2020); 37 million Spaniards have in their municipality one of the 2950 mountain clubs; hiking, according to the 2020 Sports Habits Survey, is practiced by just over seven million Spaniards.
The hundred of the logo is formulated with the presence of an ice axe, basic instrument of the progression in high mountains, and two triangles; these allude to the custom of celebrating, throughout these hundred years, mountaineering events with the making of a pennant.
To this end, in collaboration with the regional federations, a series of activities and events to be developed throughout the territory throughout the year have been programmed, which seek to involve the entire federative network and bring the FEDME values to the whole society.
The stamp includes an image of the logo where in addition to the aforementioned elements appear the figures of mountaineers without whom this centenary would not have been possible.
