Latvijas Pasts has issued a new stamp in its "Ports of Latvia" series. The stamp and the first-day cover depict the Free Port of Ventpils.
The new stamp shows the promenade of Ostas Street in Ventspils City, where the industrial daily life of the port converges with the city environment. The first-day cover depicts the work of the port, while the postmark incorporates the logo of the Free Port.
Latvijas Pasts is planning to complete the series with new additions in future. These are the first stamps issued by Latvijas Pasts dedicated to the work of individual Latvian ports, so the series is particularly popular among philatelists and other enthusiasts. The first stamp in the series, Free Port of Riga, was released in 2011.
