Germany has issued a special stamp to sent express mourning. There are occasions in life when the written lines in a personal letter are more important and appropriate than an e-mail or SMS. Whether it\’s wedding, christening or funeral, a letter is often very helpful in showing sympathy to the affected people. The bereavement is also a special event. Therefore, the German Federal Ministry of Finance this year issued a funeral stamp. The grief stamp can be used by those who want to express their personal condolences. The stamp illustrates a landscape at dusk. The setting of the sun is a sign of mortality and a symbolic of mourning and solidarity with the affected people.
