About Honor guard of the President of the Slovak Republic

The Honour Guard of the President is a symbol and attribute of Slovak statehood. Its history dates back to the beginnings of the constitution of the First Czechoslovak Republic :czech_republic:.
In addition to the uniform, which is based on the classic military cut, dressed in historical uniforms modelled after the Slovak volunteers of 1848. Specifically, they were created according to the uniform of the national revivalist Ján Francisci-Rimavský. He was portrayed in this uniform by painter Peter Michal Bohúň.

From the series ‘Typical Dutch’: Musea

From the series ‘Experience Nature’: Marker Wadden

The Marker Wadden is an artificial archipelago under development in the Markermeer (lake). The main aims of the project are to improve the water ecology and to create biodiversity. The islands have been colonized by large numbers of breeding birds.


Those fruit ones are so stinkin cute!!!

I adore these Marker Wadden. I hope everyone buys them! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Addition to my previous post: the “Sweden in 500 years” series is also going to include this domestic value stamp showing Stockholm’s town hall.

This series might have even one more additional motif, because they will even issue a minisheet, but there isn’t any pics of it yet so it is unsure if it will be completely another design or just one of the already shown ones. Two latest minisheets had the same motif as the booklet stamps so I think they will do like that this time too.
