The first stamps of Georgia as the Democratic Republic of Georgia were issued on 26 May 1919.
A further series was issued in 1921.
From 1924 until 1993 stamps of the Soviet Union
were used in Georgia following
the absorption of the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic into the U.S.S.R.
Following the fall of the Soviet Union, Georgia became independent again in April 1991 and issued stamps
in its own name from 31 July 1993.
Unlike other ex-Soviet republics, Georgia did not overprint Soviet stamps to meet their postal needs
after independence, although a number of overprints were carried out on Georgian stamps in 1994.
