Greenland Issued Stamp on Queen Margrethe II on her 80th Birthday

Since Queen Margrethe II ascended the Danish throne in 1972, several Greenlandic stamps featuring portraits of the monarch have been issued. In connection with the Queen’s 80th birthday, we proudly present a new beautiful stamp, published on the birthday of the monarch, on 16th April 2020.

The portrait shows Her Majesty wearing a Greenlandic national costume and was painted by the internationally acclaimed Greenlandic artist, Aka Høegh.The artist has been inspired by her encounters with the regent over the years. The mountain peaks in the background also form a crown-like imagery above the majesty’s head, a perfectly deliberate choice by Aka Høegh.
