Arms of Franceso Sans T-Shirt - This airmail stamp dates from the Italian occupation of the Dodecanese Islands. The Dodecanese Islands (literally 12 islands) are a group of 162 islands off the coast of Turkey in the Aegean Sea. The best known is Rhodes. The Dodecanese were ruled by the Ottoman Empire for many years until the Italian-Turkish War over Libya in 1912 when they fell under control of Italy. Following World War II they formally united with Greece, though in some spheres they retain independent status. The wing coat of arms is that of Francesco Sans, a governor of the Kos island in the 1500s. You'll love this striking coat of arms t-shirt.
