This recent computer-vended stamp from the Isle of Man features an abstract version of the central element of their coat of arms.

From Wikipedia, "The origin of the triskeles (three dexter legs joined at the hips and flexed in triangle) is obscure, but appears to stem from the Scottish takeover of the island in 1265."

A hexagonal-shaped stamp - BEAUTIFUL -- but I would expect it must be a perforation machine nightmare! I can't imagine how they did it back in the late 1800s on the Telegraph stamps. It's as interesting a detail as the stamps. It would be great if someone has information on how they perforated the hexagon issues in the 1800s.

Also, some of the geometric stamp issues on this thread are great! Thanks to everyone who has taken time to contribute,
