Czech Republic Released Stamps on Roses

\"\"Originally issued in 2003 with a CZK 6.40 face value, the stamp is now coming with redesigned colours and face value replaced with a letter.The stamp, inspired by Seifert’s verses about Prague, is a symbol of his most beloved flower, the rose, and his most beloved city, Prague.The graphic composition is centered around the astronomical tower of the Clementinum with the statue of Atlant, with the Church of Our Lady before Týn and other historical dominants of Prague in the background.The coupon in the right-hand border is decorated with an architectural detail; the other 11 coupons designed for the day of issue bear tiny motifs based on the stamp artwork.
