Sunday Stamps: windmills

Last Sunday, 23 April, the theme for Sunday Stamps was 'Windmills or lighthouses'. Alas I was out, and didn't have had time to schedule my blog post previously. Fortunately Violet had kept open the possibility to link so I just could add to the theme.

Dutch Post has issued several stamps on windmills. Among them this one, showing the windmills of Kinderdijk, a UNESCO world heritage site:

The stamp is part of a ten stamps sheet dedicated to UNESCO heritage.

A modern windmill, or wind turbine, is shown on the 2016 Europe stamps. The Dutch one is this:

I love this stamp, and also love the fact that all-over Europe, the same design was worked out in a slightly different way (size, edge/border, location of the texts, etcetera), as shows this tiny collection:

You can find a list of all 2016 Europe stamps via this link and see the stamps by clicking on the country's names.

See more stamps on the theme 'windmills or lighthouses' at and via the Sunday Stamps blog!

  1. Nice to see a group of the Think Green stamps together. And I love the first stamp - once again PostNL does such a nice job extending the view into the selvage.
