By issuing this commemorative postage stamp Croatian Post marks the 50 years of Croatian paralympic movement.

Under the moto „Spirit in Motion“, the paralympic sports on global level means the removal of limitations and surpassing of obstacles, even in situations when it appears impossible. This is especially evident in the last twenty years, during which the sports practiced by people with various disabilities has indeed flourished.In Croatia the foundations of paralympic sports and the Croatian Paralympic Committee as the roof organisation, have been set on 8 September 1964 when the Croatian Sport and Recreation League of Disabled was founded. During last fifty years the circumstances have changed, but the goal remained always the same – organisation, promotion and popularisation of sports for persons with disabilities.
