Canadian Pride



Date of Issue: 10 December 2012


Here are some new beautiful stamps from Canada featuring Canadian Pride The the iconic Maple Leaf !! The souvenir sheet with five stamps is wonderful and perfect for tourism theme.

It's no small secret that travelling Canadians sew the iconic maple leaf on backpacks and luggage. The new  designs of recent Canadian stamps  not only span the country geographically, but also show a broad cross-section of Canadian activities. The set of five stamps features essentially Canadian scenes with flag uniquely displayed. In one, three Muskoka chairs lounge on a dock facing a lake in early fall, evoking Canadian cottages from coast to coast.


The chairs reappear on the souvenir sheet, this time with the puffy, whimsical clouds of summer dotting the sky. The fall colours are recalled by the golden hue of a very Canadian hay bale that waits in a prairie field at harvest time.

On the East Coast, just outside Halifax, a spinnaker fills with a summer breeze representing the Canadian sails and flags that fill our waterways each season. This same spinnaker is shown again on the OFDC, this time with an iconic East Coast lighthouse in the background. During Canada Day celebrations in Winnipeg more than 3,000 patriotic Canadians gather on the lawn of the provincial legislature to form a living flag, challenging a record held by Victoria, British Columbia. Finally, a lone fishing hut brings a splash of colour on a clear day to a frozen Lake Scugog, Ontario.

Dear Friends,

The Year Book of Indian Philately, as you know, is a very much sought after publication among the contemporary Indian Philatelic Literature.

It has proved its mettle by winning a number of medals at various Indian and International Philatelic Exhibitions & Philatelic Literature Competitions.

We wish to continue this legacy with the coming editions too. In fact the Year Book has won a medal at every exhibition or competition it has participated in so far. Is not it incredible ? This is a publication which has proved to be a must for every philatelic library, personal or societies’.

This offer is available for 10 copies ( 2 pages  ) or more ( 1 page for every 5 copies thereafter). The matter to be published will be subject to editorial privileges.

Or, as a special favor to the societies, they may also send a commercial advertisement for this space. The commercial advertisement may be from their members or their firms.
