Finland Centenary & the Finnish Flag 20.1.2017

Finland's centenary will be visible in many ways, and postage stamps are no exception. The jubilee year began with the Finnish National Flag stamps illustrated by Ossi Hiekkala.  
The Finnish flag first flew on the Reconstruction work - Finnish Flag stamp from 1941. The stamp, drawn by Signe Hammarsten Jansson, was part of a Finnish Red Cross series used to raise funds for charity.
Thank you Ella.
