Finnish stamp themes in May include tourism, sport and nature

Five stamp publications will be released on May 7 in Finland. Each contains a total of ten new 1st class stamps. The visual theme deals with nostalgic tourism and disabled sports. Nature is represented by a national park, clouds, and a flower.

Old Finnish tourism posters are included on the Visit Finland self-adhesive sheet of ten stamps designed by Johannes Ekholm. Two of the included tourism posters originally date back to the 1930s. The Saimaa poster from 1939 is by Paul Soderstrom and Goran Englund. The designers of the Hanko poster are unknown.

The Visit Finland stamps have been released in the Europa series, for which every European postal administration picked its own stamp motifs. The posters included on the stamps have also been published in the popular Come to Finland book.
