Following a request to the Chief Minister by 11-year old Isabella Jimenez, the Royal Gibraltar Post Office will be paying tribute to Gibraltar’s two Olympians, rhythmic gymnast Georgina Cassar and hockey umpire Nathan Stagno.

To coincide with the Paralympic Games and National Week between Monday 27 August and Friday 14 September 2012, the pillar box outside the main Post Office in Main Street will be painted in red, white and blue. An inscription will read: “A tribute to all Gibraltarians who participated and helped in London 2012”. This is temporary and it will be repainted in the traditional colour afterwards.

The Chief Minister, Hon Fabian Picardo MP said he was delighted the Royal Gibraltar Post Office were happy to follow up Isabella’s idea. “In the UK, Olympic gold medallists have been honoured by their home town with the painting of one pillar box in gold. Here, we could not let the occasion go by without paying some tribute to Georgina, Nathan and everyone else from Gibraltar who played different roles at the Olympics.”
