Fiji 1962 definitive SG No.319 showing a "White Orchid".
I think it is Dendrobium prasinum, which is native to Fiji.

I love the orchids shown, especially the ones on covers. The ones from Burundi above show that the many colourful stamps from that country were actually used on mail. That cover from Zambia is really beautiful!

Here is another Burundi orchid stamp, issued in 1972. I think the orchid on the stamp is not a native orchid as Cattleya trianaei is found in Colombia.
