Flag of Saint Kitts and Nevis

Saint Kitts, an islands in the Caribbean Sea (about one-third of the way from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago), was the first British colony in the West Indies, established in 1623. Control was disputed between France and Britain on the 17th and 18th centuries. It was ceded to Britain in 1783. Saint Kitts and Nevis were united in 1882. The area gained internal self-government in 1967. Anguilla declared itself independent from the control of Saint Kitts in 1969. Saint Kitts and Nevis became independent in 1983.

The first postage stamps were issued for the colony of Saint Christopher in 1870. From 1903 until 1951 stamps were issued for Saint Kitts-Nevis. Stamps for Leeward Islands were also used concurrently. In 1952 the stamps were issued for St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla. Starting in 1980 the stamps were inscribed "St. Kitts."

Early in 1980, the government of St. Kitts and Nevis decided to separate the stamp issuing policy so that each island would have its own postage stamps. Independent Philatelic Bureaus were established on each island and the first issue with individual names was released in September 1980.
