Sunday Stamps: Flags

This Sunday Stamps' theme is 'Maps or Flags'.

Although I have some nice map stamps, today I chose for the flags. Because, how coincidental, I happened to have joined a 'flag stamp' chain-something recently, and a week ago my own card returned, provided with three more flag stamps!

This was the front side of my card:

No flag to be seen! But on the back I've put one, so the card was ready to send:

* before it's long journey *

After 6 or 7 weeks of traveling, the card returned home this way:

* after traveling via Estonia, Finland and Malaysia back to the Netherlands *

So, flags from four countries, united in one postcard!

Meanwhile two of the three other cards (from the other participants) arrived at my place. Which I passed on to the next receiver. Before sending out I scanned the back sides so you can enjoy them, too!

This was the first card I received:

The card arrived from Malaysia. Besides the flag image, there is an other interesting thing on this stamp: the postage rate (#60 Sen) has been printed in Braille!

The second card is from Estonia:

With the complete Estonian flag on the front side:

  1. That is an interesting project.
    And a braille stamp - very cool :)

  2. You couldn't have been in a more appropriate project than this. Well done.

  3. It's nice to see the postcards travelling so much!

  4. This is such a creative idea, Heleen. And great to see some Finnish stamps, they are always so creative.
