Beach Volleyball in Aland 16.8.2011
On 16 August 2011, a Beach volleyball stamp by artist Catharina Nygård was issued in Aland.
The stamp appears in the form of a minisheet of eight identical stamps. The frame of the My Stamps issue is also the 2011 frame for all the Post's My Stamps products, the web shop service that allows you to create stamps with a motif of your own choice. At the same time, the stamp promotes Paf Open, a tournament for men and women on the international world tour of beach volleyball (Swatch FIVB World Tour), arranged in Aland in August.
Paf Open was first arranged in August 2007, but the organizers refrained from arranging the event in 2008 as it collided with the Olympic Games in Beijing. Since then, Paf Open has become a recurrent event in Aland each summer. My dear friend Ella sent me this nice FDC and the maxicard.
