For the end of the year, POST Philately will publish 4 new ATR stamps.
These reduced price stamps, intended as postage for non-profit organizations, present pictures of 4 wild flowers that grow predominantly but not exclusively on waysides and thus are less exposed to the chemical fertilizers spread over agricultural lands.
These flowers are the Feierblumm (Red Poppy), the Karblumm (Cornflower), the Maargréitchen (Daisy) and the Dëschtel (Thistle). These flowers enrich Luxembourg’s countryside and contribute to its beauty and great biodiversity. Preserving these precious flowers is part, for all of us, of our responsibility to protect the environment.
