The United States Postal Service has announced the release of its Patriotic Star stamp, celebrating US patriotism. The stamp, issued on 19 March 2013 and designed by digital artist Nancy Stahl, features a five-pointed star - one of the USA's best-known symbols.

The star featured on the stamp is designed to look as it it's been crafted from ribbon, with red, white and blue ribbon colours shown against a white background. The star is actually made up of a smaller star inside a larger one, both having five points as featured on the USA's flag. The first class mail stamp (46c) will be issued in strips of 25, and a self-adhesive coil of 10,000.

Stars on USA stamps

The Patriotic Star stamp is the latest in a line of patriotic stamp issues featuring the five pointed star. In 1976, when the nation celebrated its 200th birthday, a red, white and blue stamp was issued, with the wording 'American Revolution Bicentennial 1776-1976'. The five-pointed star also featured in 1981, on a Circle of Stars issue, and in 2002 on the 'star' stamp.
