Growing desire for Irish self-governance led to the Irish War of Independence, which resulted in most of Ireland seceding from the Union and forming the Irish Free State in 1922. Northern Ireland remained part of the Union, and the state was renamed to the current United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 1927. The modern-day United Kingdom is the same country: a direct continuation of what remained after Ireland's secession, not an entirely new successor state.
The UK's first commemorative stamps were issued for the British Empire Exhibition in 1924. The pair of large-format stamps featured a lion in an imposing stance. A second set of commemoratives in 1929 marked the 9th Congress of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), held in London that year. Starting from 1934 most stamps were printed in photogravure.
