The four designs in this stamp issue by Singapore Post portray Singapore\’s vibrant urban landscape nestled within a thriving garden with native plants and wildlife. To commemorate 50 years of greening Singapore, the self-adhesive local stamps from this series come affixed with seeds of Portulaca grandiflora for everyone to plant. All the stamps buyers will be able to have their own little flower garden and participate to Singapore\’s transformation into a City of Garden.
Over the decades, flowering species have been introduced to beautify the city and make the streetscape more vibrant. Parks have grown in numbers and attractiveness to become areas where the community can come together to relax, exercise and bond. The pervasive green network of nature reserves, park connectors, tree-lined roads and other natural areas has made living in the city more pleasant.
