Colorful crown of flowers graces new stamp from Latvia
New Stamps of the World by Denise McCarty
Just in time for the summer solstice, Latvia issued a €0.50 self-adhesive stamp June 13 shaped like the crown of flowers traditionally worn at its midsummer festivals, Ligo and Jani.
Designed by Girts Griva, this stamp also shows a crown “woven from various flowers found in Latvian meadows,” according to Latvian Post.
