2019 is a year with symbolic importance for Estonia, marking 150 years since the first song festival and the 20th edition of the festival. It is an anniversary year for Estonian song and dance.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the first song festival, Omniva will issue a special series of stamp products.
‘Singing’ Estonian Song Celebration 150 postage stamp
The Estonian Song Celebration 150 souvenir sheet depicts the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds familiar to all Estonians. This place is a symbol that every Estonian knows.
It has played an important role in the restoration of Estonian independence and the continuity of cultural traditions. The cotton fabric is the same as used for Estonian folk costumes and inspired by this,
the souvenir sheet is also printed on cotton material. Estonians are a singing nation and to spread our song worldwide, the stamp image can be scanned using a device and the Cee app to
listen to one of Estonians’ most beloved song festival numbers, “My Fatherland Is My Love.” It can be listened to anywhere in the world during one year.
The print run of the souvenir sheet is 15,000. The designer is artist Indrek Ilves.
