Swiss Post issued a stamp June 21 to commemorate Pope Francis’ first visit to Switzerland.

Swiss Post announced the stamp June 20, the day before the pope’s one-day visit to Geneva in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the World Council of Churches.

The 1-franc stamp combines two photographs: one of the pope waving; and the second of Jet d’Eau fountain, a Geneva landmark.
