«The most beautiful Swiss stamp 2022», Special cover
Which stamp truly impressed you in 2022? That’s what we wanted to know. With 14,160 entries cast in the public vote, the most beautiful stamp is: Typically Swiss, the special stamp featuring the Matterhorn, the alphorn, edelweiss and the Swiss flag.
For the first time, people around the world were able to vote online for their favourite stamp at swisspost.ch/stamps from September to 9 December and choose the most beautiful Swiss stamp of 2022.
We were eager to see the results! After all, whether it was the “Typically Swiss” special stamp with its alphorn and Matterhorn, the stamp with a campfire and rub-off scent dedicated to the Scouts’ National Jamboree, or the “Kiss”, there were plenty of designs that appealed to our emotions. Alternatively, there were the stamps with a special message, such as those marking “Marriage for all” or the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. And then there were the animals in their habitats – the common kingfisher, hazel dormouse and other stamps with a high “cuteness factor”.
With 14,160 entries, stamp fans have now chosen the “Typically Swiss” special stamp. Issued in September, the stamp was designed by graphic artist Andrea Klaiber. “It’s no surprise to me that this stamp has been so well received,” says Stefan Bühler, Philately Manager at Swiss Post. “The design brings together everything we in Switzerland love so much.”
Second place was claimed by the colourful “The popular sport of hiking” stamp, designed by Nicole Vögeli; “Bumblebee” by Oreste Vinciguerra took third place.
All participants were entered into a prize draw to win ten year books of Swiss stamps with a Postshop voucher worth 50 francs. The winners have been contacted. This is the first time Swiss Post has conducted this vote.
