In preparation for spring, the pack of 10 stamps features some of the UK’s favorite florals as well as the silhouette of the monarch.
The colorful stamps come with a picture of the flower as well as its common name.
The flowers used in the new collection include:
- Sweet peas
David Gould, Director of Foreign Affairs and Policy at the Royal Mail, said: “Britain is a nation of gardeners, and a love of flowers runs deep in our collective consciousness.
“His Majesty is known as a passionate gardener and we are delighted that the first special stamps featuring his silhouette celebrate some of the most iconic flowers in British gardens.”
For the floral stamp arrangement, Royal Mail worked with gardening writer Naomi Slade.
The creation of the monarch’s silhouette came about through a collaboration between Royal Mail’s Head of Design and Editorial Marcus James, illustrator Andrew Davidson, and Ian Chivers of the design agency Atelier Works.
The project group worked on creating an image of His Majesty the King and making sure it was appropriate for the stamp size.
Special flower stamps can be pre-ordered online now by visiting: www.royalmail.com/flowers or by calling 03457641641.
The Presentation Pack which includes all 10 stamps in the collection will be available to purchase from 23rd March for £10.40.
