The Finns have voted for twin brothers and a little cowherd girl to go on stamps

The pictures for the stamps to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Finland's independence have been chosen.

Four photos were chosen by public vote, and the four other photos going on the stamps were selected by the Finland Post Stamp Art Committee in cooperation with the Finnish Independence 90th Anniversary Committee. The committees were assisted by graphic designer Paivi Vainionpaa, who is responsible for designing the commemorative stamps. All eight photos come from home photo albums belonging to Finns and are the fruits of the Memories of Finland photograph competition held by Finland Post and daily newspaper Helsingin Sanomat's monthly supplement.

The Memories of Finland stamp miniature sheet will be issued on 2 November 2007.
