USPS Dedicates New US Flag Stamp

The U.S. Postal Service dedicated a new U.S. Flag stamp at the Southeastern Stamp Expo in Norcross, GA, continuing the organization’s tradition of celebrating patriotism through stamps that feature one of our nation’s most recognizable symbols. The stamp features a detail from a photograph of the billowing Stars and Stripes.

“A traditional take on an old favorite, the new U.S. Flag stamp adds a touch of majesty and patriotic grace to First-Class Mail correspondence,” said Jeffrey C. Williamson, the Postal Service’s Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Vice President, who dedicated the stamp. “The elegant yet simple design of the stamp conveys the quiet dignity of Old Glory waving in the wind and calls to mind the values of liberty and justice the American flag represents.”

Williamson was joined at the stamp dedication by retired Brig. Gen. Mitchell Zais , president, American Philatelic Society; Mary-Anne Penner, director of Stamp Services, U.S. Postal Service; Edwin L. Jackson, senior public service associate emeritus, University of Georgia; and Beatrix Clark, philatelist.
