Ireland's Rain Stamps

2019-03-15 Fri

An post (Ireland Post) issued a new and unusual stamp on 25th February 2019 featuring expression of Rains.

The new stamp titled ‘A Stamp for Ireland’ celebrates Irish Identity through a fun depiction of the Irish weather. The design features the blue sky and green fields which typify the Irish landscape, with sheeting rain a key element of the scene.

Closer inspection of the design reveals that the metallic silver raindrops are microscopic words in the Irish and English language which are everyday expressions for rain. The stamp carries a ‘W’ (worldwide) designation for international posting.

Designed by the Stone Twins, the stamp depicts English and Irish words and partial expressions for rain starting in the upper right.
