The Federal Republic of Germany's 1971 anti-tuberculosis/Christmas seals have a wildflower theme. One of these labels depicts the lady-slipper orchid (Cypripedium calceolus), which is native to Europe and Asia.

From Wikipedia, "This is the largest orchid species in Europe, growing to 60 cm (2 ft) tall...It is a long-lived perennial and spreads using horizontal stems (rhizomes)."

On April 12, 2005 Ireland issued 5 new values of its eleventh definitive series "Native Wild Flowers". The 7c stamp (Hib. #D289/Sc #1608) depicts a fly orchid (Ophrys insectifera).

From Wikipedia, "The name arises because the inflorescence resembles a fly, although it is dependent on Hymenoptera for pollination. The plants use scent to attract male wasps which pollinate the flowers as they attempt to mate with them. The scent released by the flowers mimics female sexual pheromones."
