Countries with no Stamps yet? June, 2022 list
Could we have a Slowly stamp for...
The other day, a new user posted a topic at our Slowly app Reddit sub, inquiring about a stamp for Paraguay — which is one of two South American countries I knew are still missing a location stamp of their own.
Where are we now in terms of Coverage?
The United Nations member states are the 193 sovereign states that are members of the United Nations (UN) and have equal representation in the UN General Assembly. The UN is the world's largest intergovernmental organization.
Souce : Wikipedia.
My fairly current Slowly Stamp collection show 170 countries, in total.
Recently we got the new Slowly Stamp Suggestions site
And I made a topic there, requesting some love and attention for the Democratic Republic of Congo - a large country with 108 Million people which to this point does NOT have a single Slowly stamp yet.
The post was well received, got lots of comments, and has been upgraded to 'Under Review' status – the first stage on moving along to a possible release. Yey!!
There was much progress in these many months
Compared to my original post mentioned, the African Continent coverage has improved dramatically.
And that is it for Africa. From a total of 54 Nations, only 14 have their own Slowly stamp currently. (40 countries without any stamps)
But there are still missing ones, like D.R.C. I requested, and others.
Vika Vika took the time and prepared a very thorough list
....of ALL the missing countries, the ones without any stamps, including many small island nations (which could not get as much attention as they are so small).
Yann2: I have compiled a list of countries that still don't have stamps and flags. Some countries have stamps but still don't have flags.
14 African countries without flags:
- Gabon – 17 August
- Burundi – 1 July
- Cabo Verde – 5 July. One of the best places for surfing in the world
- Comores – 6 July. I suggested fruit bat found only there for stamp
- Congo (not confuse with big Congo) – 15 August
- DR Congo – 30 June
- Malawi – 6 July
- São Tomé and Príncipe – 12 July
- Seychelles – 29 June. One of the most heavenly places in the world.
- Guinea Ecuatorial – 12 October
- Eritrea – 24 May
- Eswatini (ex Swaziland) – 6 September
- Central African Republic – 13 August
- South Sudan (not confuse with Sudan) – 9 July
And he continued on with other Regions :
- Andorra 8 September
- Monaco 19 November
- San Marino 3 September
- Antigua and Barbuda – 1 November
- Dominica (not Dominicana) – 3 November
- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines -26 October
- Saint Kitts and Nevis – 19 September
- Saint Lucia – 22 February
- Vanuatu – 30 July
- Kiribati – 12 July
- The Marshall Islands – 1 May
- The Federated States of Micronesia – 3 November
- Nauru – 31 January
- Palau – 9 July
- Solomon Islands – 7 July
- Tuvalu – 1 October
Also, some Countries with stamps but still without flags:
- Afghanistan – 19 August
- Bahamas – 10 July
- Belize – 21 September
- Grenada – 7 February
- Liechtenstein – 15 August
- North Korea – 15 August/9 September/10 October
- Turkmenistan – 27 September
- Vatican – 11 February
So 38 countries have no flags + Palestine + Faroes (not country but have stamp). 11 of them have national day in July + Faroes (29 July)
Big Thank you to Vika Vika for this
...which is a nice, detailed update. Cheers!
I have also posted a request for a Palestinian Flag - here, which received a number of supporting votes, thank you all.
And Countries that have a Flag but no Location stamp?
In a comment on our subreddit topic, Eisenherrz asked :
Does that include flags as well? I am very interested to know how many countries we have without Location stamps (even if there are flags available).
An interesting question, which I did not have an answer to at the time. Soon another member there, EducationalAd1575, worked on a listing of these. So here is, copied from his comment and sorted in alphabetical, geographical order.
Countries with Flags but no Location stamps yet :
African Continent :
- Burkina Faso
- Guinea Bissau
- Ivory Coast
- Sierra Leone
In Oceania :
- East Timor
- Papua New Guinea
And Elsewhere :
A final note in his comment :
Also Laos and Mongolia have only some Commemorative stamps, besides their flag, but no Location stamps.
Big thank you for this contribution!
Thanks to the Slowly Team for this new addition!
Keep in mind that the Slowly Stamp Requests and Suggestions site/forum is now open for business and already lead to VARIOUS suggested stamps being taken from idea to Releases in a short time!
