The U.S. Postal Service continues its tradition of celebrating the U.S. flag with this new stamp in coils of 100.
Reminiscent of the 50 flags encircling the Washington Monument, these three U.S. flags are shown as if on poles arranged in a circular formation. The flags, shown from a low-angle perspective, billowing in the wind, evoke a sense of reverence and honor.
The American flag has long symbolized the strength and spirit of our nation. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation establishing June 14 as Flag Day, which Congress officially designated in August 1949. Today, the American flag remains a powerful symbol.
Laura Stutzman was the 2018 US Flag stamp designer and illustrator. Ethel Kessler was the art director.
The 2018 US Flag stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
