From wikipedia, "Mikael Agricola (1510-1557) was a Finnish Lutheran clergyman who became the de facto founder of literary Finnish and a prominent proponent of the Protestant Reformation in Sweden, including Finland...His first book, "ABC-Kirja", or ABC book, was a primer for reading and a catechism. It was first printed in 1543."

On May 9, 1945, one day after Germany's unconditional surrender ended WWII in Europe, Switzerland issued a 13-stamp "Peace in Europe set. The lowest five values of this set (5-40 centimes) share a common, non-pictorial design with the frame being gray, and the central panel a different color for each value. The frames of these stamps contain the Latin phrase, "Pax Hominibus Bonae Voluntatis", meaning "Peace, Good Will."

Here is the 40 centimes value (Sc #297) from the set.
