POST Greenland’s 2015 Stamp Programme

I am happy to present the 24 stamps that POST Greenland will issue in 2015. As has become our tradition, in 2015 our stamp issues will be despatched in three subscriptions during January, May and October.

Our first stamps in 2015 will be issued on 19th January. The first two designs depict Ivalo Abelsen’s artistic interpretation where we pay tribute to Greenland’s cultural importance. The stamps will be issued in whole sheets. The next two stamps, also released in whole sheets, show Camilla Nielsen’s breathtaking interpretation of regional Greenlandic songs. This year’s additional value stamp will be issued on behalf of the Arctic Winter Games 2016 - Nuuk being the elected host city. The stamp will be issued in whole sheets, souvenir sheets and also in a souvenir folder. The January release ends with the last two stamps in Ina Rosing’s colourful series showcasing Greenland’s mining history. The mining stamps will be issued in self-adhesive format only.

On 16th April Her Majesty the Queen will reach her 75th birthday. This anniversary will be commemorated with a postage stamp depicting a photo of her taken by court photographer Steen Brogaard. This stamp will be issued in whole sheets.

The two EUROPA stamps, under the theme ‘Old toys’, has been created by Bolatta Silis-Hoegh and will be issued on 11th May in complete sheet format, souvenir sheets and also in a self-adhesive booklet. On the same day we shall release three more stamps in Martin Mörck’s acclaimed series depicting civil aviation in Greenland. In the definitive series two new values will be issued, the 11th May shipment will be completed with the annual SEPAC stamp which in 2015 will highlight the theme of cultural events. Julie Edel Hardenberg is the artist who has created POST Greenland’s contribution to this series.On 19th October we shall issue four stamps in a brand new series called ‘Greenland architecture’ designed by architect and artist Naja Rosing-Asvid. The stamps will be in whole sheet format and also in souvenir sheets. On the same day there will be another two stamps with a theme which we shall only divulge to our collectors next spring! True to tradition, we shall end the year with the Christmas stamps, on this occasion designed by Christian Fleischer Rex. These Christmas stamps will be issued in normal gummed sheets and also in self-adhesive stamp booklet format.

On the same day, 19th October, we shall release our 2015 Year Pack in which all 24 stamps and 4 souvenir sheets will be included.

I hope our new 2015 stamp programme will be well received and used extensively in the letter post here in Greenland. May you enjoy the stamps in 2015.
