List of people on stamps of Gabon

Gabon first had its own stamps as a French colony in 1886. During this period, the only identified people to appear on Gabonese stamps were Count Savorgnan de Brazza who first appeared on a postage due stamp of 1930, then on a regular issue stamp in 1932, and his aide Chief Makoko of the Bateke who also appeared on the 1930 postage dues.

Gabon used the stamps of French Equatorial Africa from 1934 until it gained independence on November 28, 1958.
