The article focuses on the move of the International Congresses of Mathematicians (ICM) in commemorating different stamps with mathematical designs in Europe from 1966 to 2006. In 1982 a set of stamps featuring the Polish mathematicians Stefan Banach, Waclaw Sierpinski, Stanislaw Zaremba, and Zygmunt Janiszewski. For the 2006 ICM, the stamp design included a geometrical sunflower pattern.
