kenya-flag-coat

The Republic of Kenya is situated on the east coast of central Africa.  To the south is Tanzania, to the west Uganda and Sudan, to the north Ethiopia, and to the east Somalia and the Indian Ocean.  Its capital is Nairobi.  In 1920, the East Africa Protectorate became a British colony.  Independence was granted in 1963.  A year later, the Republic of Kenya was proclaimed.

In 1963, Kenya issued its first stamps as an independent state.  Before that, stamps were issued under various postal agencies:

1890-1895 – British East Africa Company

1895-1903 – British East Africa

1903-1922 – East Africa and Uganda Protectorates

1922-1935 – Kenya and Uganda

1935-1976 – Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika/Tanzania
