There's a plane symbol on this international world rate Belgian stamp. Interesting that the word world is in English, and that the design is a stamp and airmail sticker combined. And I'm not sure what to say about the color choice (sickly green?) not to mention King Philippe's expression on this stamp.
And an angel from Royal Mail's Christmas 2007 stamp set.

I hadn't thought of angels :)ReplyDelete
Someone commented on the expression of the king on this stamp last week. I don't find it strange (?).
In Spain, the C rate is "Rest of the world". That always makes me thing that you can send a letter to the Moon or Mars with a C rate...
I think there's something just a little off about the expression. I think it might be just a bit more expensive to send to the moon :)Delete
More than 1,55€? ;)Delete
I am going to post a butterfly too.ReplyDelete
They always look good on stamps.Delete
I like the idea of attaching an airmail to the stamp.ReplyDelete
An angel and a butterfly are lovely choices (and both are blue!)
This would have worked well for last week's theme, wouldn't it?Delete
A beautiful diversity of the flying!ReplyDelete
And I like the connection between the stamps, not only by the wings but also by the blue :-)
This was not on purpose - a complete coincidence.Delete
I do like the angel which is both angelic and wonderfully wintery, I can't believe I don't remember the stamp set.ReplyDelete
I thought it was more recent, I was surprised to find it was from 2007.Delete
I'm longing to see a real blue butterfly. For now i will have to make do with a stamp.ReplyDelete
I hope you see one this year.Delete
