Celebrate the holidays with Poinsettia, a new set of Global Forever stamps from the U.S. Postal Service.
These Global Forever stamps can mail a one-ounce letter to any country to which First-Class Mail International service is available. As with all Global Forever stamps, this stamp will have a postage value equivalent to the price of the single-piece First-Class Mail International first-ounce machineable letter in effect at the time of use.
The stamp art features a photo of a poinsettia. The photo captures the beauty of the green leaves, the red bracts, and the yellow flowers in the center of the plant.
The Poinsettia—Euphorbia pulcherrima—is a small tropical tree that can reach heights of more than 10 feet in the wild in its native Mexico. We think of the beautifully colored “petals” as flowers, but those modified leaves as bracts. The Poinsettia’s flower is a cluster of small, yellow, cup-shaped structures in the center of the leaves.
Revered by the Aztecs, the Poinsettia was a symbol of purity. They used the bracts to make dye and cosmetics, creating medicine for fever from the plant’s sap. During the 17th century, European priests observed that the plant bloomed during winter and incorporated it into festivals to celebrate the Nativity.
The plant’s name was in honor of Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first American ambassador to Mexico, who sent cuttings of the exotic plant back to the U.S. in the early years of the 19th century. National Poinsettia Day is on December 12, when Dr. Poinsett died.
The art director was William J. Gicker. Greg Breeding designed the stamp with an existing photograph by Betsy Pettet.
The new Global Forever stamps are being issued in self-adhesive panes of 10.
