Linnansaari National Park 5.5.2014

The fifth and final stamp of the stamp set representing Finnish national parks was also issued on 5th May. The stamp depicts the Linnansaari National Park which was established in 1956 and protects the valuable nature of Saimaa island as well as its beautiful landscapes. Linnansaari is one of the best habitats for the Saimaa ringed seal and offers one of the densest osprey populations in Finland. Designed by Teemu Ollikainen, the 1st class Linnansaari National Park stamp was issued in a self-adhesive booklet of ten stamps.

Thank you Ella.
