Hi, 51studebaker, thanks for the info! It's great to know that there are identical snow flakes existing. Is there any photos or a link, I am interested in seeing more details around this topic, and it will make a great topic for the coming Christmas gatherings. And what's more, it kinda answers a question of mine when I took a close look at the pictorial postmark above. There are two identical snowflakes on the right side; although all the other flakes are different. I was wondering why the designer does not make all of them different, and just leave two of them alike. Now I think he perhaps does this intentionally.

Hi, Ringo, thanks for there beautiful stamps, I really enjoyed watching these designs. I am surprised to find out that they are issued in 1971, unbelievable, they look pretty Avant - garde for me! Probably, they are the earliest snow flake on postage stamps?

Mascots of the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, 2014 - Snowflake and Ray of Light


Hi, Idebee. This is a simple sovenir sheet "Happy New Year! - Moskow, Kremlin" Why such a small circulation is unknown. But he alone is valued as 10 complete annual sets of stamps of Russia

Hi, Vayolene, you have really some good old stamps. I always love old stamps, simple but beautiful, just like blue and white porcelin of Ming Dynasty of China. As it is said by people , brevity is the soul of wit. And I believe the earliest is always a must-have for any topic, thank you for all the great infos, it's incredible that you have found out 1948's snow flakes. It is really wonderful to just watch them on the screen!

Hi, Alexey, they are really cute. I can never imagine snowflake transform into a little girl#65292;an elf. The author has done a good design indeed with such great creativity. And after I asked you why such small circulation, I have noticed similar sheets in China as well. I am not quite aware of that before#65292;they have to buy this kind of sheet via drawing lots. Take a look , this one is issued recently with only 3000 pieces.

Hi, Ringo, thanks for this great stamp. It is a very clear and vivid microscopic photo and I now can understand what the physicist say about snowflakes not being perfectly symetrical. They are a combination of order and chaos, very interesting to see that! And it's great to know that there is a Royal Microscopical Society running to these days. I think microscope would make a very great topic all by itself!

Hi, 22crows, thanks for the links, but I have encountered problems loading the pages, it's just too slow, I will try again later to see if I will have some good luck.

Hi, Alexey, thanks for the great additions, Russia is no doubt the nation with the most snowflakes I suppose! :-)

I saw this sheet, they are mascots too right? Could you tell me their English names, I want to know some more about there cute little mascots. I tried to visit the site printed on the sheet, but it's only in Russian language. I plan to start a topic on the mascots, would you mind if I use your image?

I see#65292;I thought they have other names#65281;I see some background introductions about them now, The leopard turns out to a lifesaver, no wonder that he wears some gears around his waist, and the background settings of the other guys are also interesting too! Really enjoy reading those little stories behind them! Thanks a lot for helping me get to know them, and find so great a topic as well!

Mascots of 2022 Winter Olympics: Bing Dundun & Xue Rongrong. I can see more snowflakes coming onto Chinese stamps :-), which is pretty limited in number till now!
