Sunday Stamps !! A-Z 'Z' - Czechoslovakia. South Africa

As we come to the end of this round of A-Z I thought I would have at least 2 'Zs' for the price of one - 

Czechoslovakia - 18 July 1953
Antonín Zápotocký was born at Zákolany in 1884. A communist, he became Prime Minister in 1948, and President in 1953 until his death later that year.

I searched for a stamp connected with Zulus but had to settle for this South African stamp from 1954

Zebra - 14 October 1954
To see what other 'Z' related stamps are on show this week please visit Sunday-stamps-II-164.

I thought for sure I would have a zebra, but alas, nothing. So I'm glad you found one.
I am impressed with the Czech president, though!

You are always able to find a stamp that fits. I also like the second one.
