Åland Post’s sea-buckthorn stamp has won silver in the vote for the most beautiful Sepac stamp 2022
Sepac, the co-operative body for the small postal administrations in Europe, issues postage stamps each year on a common theme, and the 2022 theme was locally produced beverages.
‘Sea-buckthorn is Åland’s own super berry – culinary, juicy and health promoting. Photographer and set designer of the stamp issue, Tiina Tahvanainen, has created a delicate image of the vitamin C-rich sea-buckthorn drink that tempts the eyes and tickles the taste buds,’ said Johanna Finne, marketing design manager at Åland Post Stamps.
The vote for the most beautiful 2022 Sepac stamps took place in the spring. Nine stamps from nine different small European countries and regions were included in the vote. The stamp from Malta received the most votes, with Guernsey’s stamp in third place.
The sea-buckthorn stamp was issued on 6 September 2022 .The vote for the most beautiful 2023 Sepac stamp started on 29 September and continues until 31 January 2024 at www.sepacstamps.eu. This year’s theme is traditional markets. The Åland stamp issued on 27 July shows the Viking market in Saltvik.
