Finnish Post is ready to issue its Valentine’s Day stamps

December 22nd, 2014 is glad to inform that Finnish Post has designed and is ready to issue its Valentine's Day stamps. The issue consists of six stamps that comprise a miniature sheet. "Friends together" philatelic release is scheduled to be put into circulation on the 19th of January 2015.

The cheerful stamps created by Ilja Karsikas feature snowflakes, trees, berries, birds and various other cute animals.

"The idea behind these stamps was to display joyful and colorful encounters in the woods. The stamp sheet's working title was "Forest songs". You can see this in the stamp where a vole has climbed into a nest to sing. Each stamp displays a lovely winter moment with friends" says illustrator Ilja Karsikas.
In Finland, Valentine's Day is mostly celebrated as a friends' day.
