Dennis Page and Oliver Hill Create Titanic Stamp

Toronto:  Canada Post has unveiled 5 commemorative stamps to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

The stamps, created by Halifax decorative designers Dennis Page and Oliver Hill  combine the image of the ship with elements that show Canada's involvement in the rescue efforts required after its sinking.

"This was the biggest  man made moving object on earth, that set off on her maiden voyage, hit an iceberg and ended in disaster", Page said.

"That really stuck with me and I was going to show that feeling."
