POST Greenland issues new stamps today
The issue includes eight stamps, three souvenir sheets, one stamp booklet, two souvenir folders and one year pack. The stamps will also be issued on First Day Covers. The stamp themes reflect historical and current as well as cultural themes in Greenland.
Greenlandic architecture, Renewable energy and Christmas in Greenland
The last stamp issue in 2015 commences with four stamps in a new series ‘Greenlandic architecture’ for the Greenlandic culture and identity. Naja Rosing-Asvid has painted the first four designs in the series. Both stamps will be issued in normal complete sheets, two souvenir sheets and one souvenir folder.
Two new stamps in a new series ‘Renewable energy’ will be issued on the same day. The designs have been made by Miki Jacobsen. The stamps will be issued in complete sheets, one souvenir sheet and one souvenir folder.
As it is our tradition, two Greenlandic Christmas stamps will be issued as both stamps on gummed paper and in a self-adhesive booklet. Christian Fleischer Rex is the artist who has created the Christmas stamp-images.
Finally the 2015 stamp year is closed with the year pack, in which all the Greenlandic stamps and souvenir sheets are included.
