Triskelion Definitives

Collection Issue Date: 15th February 2017 - Launching at Spring Stampex

Our first variable value self adhesive stamp collection

We are pleased to present our very first collection of variable value self-adhesive definitive stamps. This first collection of four stamps is based on the Manx Three Legs of Man emblem which also known as a Triskelion. The legs usually run clockwise and carry the Latin motto 'Quocunque Jeceris Stabit' meaning 'whichever way you throw, I stand', a reference to the independence and resilience of the Manx people.The four versions of this emblem are based on:
• The three legs as they appear in Douglas Town Hall
• The Millenium of Tynwald three legs
• The three legs as seen on the old brewery building on Castletown Quay
• A modern interpretation of the three legs of man.

This collection is part of our 2017 issue programme and as such they will be supplied in accordance with the requirements of your standing order.
