Special stamp


The stork is following me this week! As I was clearing up my cupboard today I found one of the special stamps issued last August over The Hague. All the landmarks of the city are represented on that stamp (maybe I should have kept this photo for next month's theme!!).

Just enlarge the photo by clicking on it and enjoy: the stork, the Binnenhof (Dutch Parliament), the main new building Hoftoren, the Golden Coach of the Queen, the Kurhaus, etc.....most of which I already pictured earlier on this website. If you want to have a closer look at the details, just click here.

I guess this stamp is still on sale at the post office, except if it is already sold out....

Lezard, I'm enjoying your stork series! I never saw that stamp or I would have bought some.

I agree with your "mixed feelings" on yesterday's post. In the early 1980s there were only 5 breeding pair of storks in the entire Netherlands! They've made a remarkable comeback thanks to special efforts of various groups. So to see the window decoration is disturbing (even if it is funny)!
