Stamps of the Arabian Nights, Part 3

Ajman is another of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is the smallest of the emirates, at just 260 square kilometers. By comparison, Wolfe Island, just south of Kingston, Ontario comes in at about 120 square kilometers. In 1971 Ajman joined the UAE. The stamps shown below were published in 1967 while Ajman was still under British protection.
