The Stamp Year 2021

New year, new stamps. We hope that the themes and motifs we have planned will make it even more fun for you to send your greetings and letters and to add to your collection of attractive designs. You will find links to earlier stamps years furhter down on this page.

As always, this year’s stamp program contains a mix of themes and motifs. We believe and hope that you will find something to suit your specific needs.
The first stamp edition of 2021 includes a booklet focusing on our environment and the environmental work that is underway to save and preserve Sweden’s unique and sensitive natural world. The Riksdag (Swedish parliament) has set 16 environmental quality targets and we show some of these on the five stamps. The theme of this year’s Europa stamps is Endangered Wildlife, and the coil stamp features the European green toad, which is critically endangered. In Sweden, there are now only a few to be found, in Skåne and Blekinge provinces.

Other themes during the year include two centenaries; master engraver Czeslaw Slania would have turned 100 years old this year, and the second cause for celebration is that it is exactly 100 years since women were first given the right to vote. Late summer flowers, beautiful Swedish household porcelain and airplanes are some of the other exciting motifs to come during the year.

We end in traditional fashion with the year’s Christmas stamps and a wintery theme that will be suitable for your letters and cards throughout the winter.

The stamp year begins with motifs that focus on our environment and the environmental work that is going on to save and preserve various unique and sensitive nature. The Riksdag (Swedish Parliament) has filled up 16 environmental quality goals and on the stamps we show some of the goals illustrated by Henning Trollbäck. We also pay attention to the fact that Gothenburg celebrates 400 years. The stamps show some of what can be discovered and experienced in Gothenburg.
Continuation of the stamp year 2021 will be published in the beginning of January 2021.

Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary, Gothenburgers’ Gothenburg

Frimärke från utgåva Göteborg 400 år, Göteborgarnas Göteborg, 2021.

In 2021, Gothenburg celebrates its 400th anniversary. As part of the celebration, an entirely new map of Gothenburg has been created – Gothenburg Jubilee Map. During 2020, residents were invited to put
forward places and buildings from their neighborhoods.
This was a major feat of collation that resulted in 100 places of interest from across the city, which were illustrated by ten local illustrators. The illustrations create a visual journey through Gothenburg as seen by its inhabitants and show how much there is to discover and experience. Some of the illustrations have been used to form the collage
comprising the 5 stamp designs.
