Stamps CHF 0.90 «Snow crystal», Sheet with 10 stamps
Warm light shining inside people’s homes while cold snow crystals form on the window outside – wintry scenes like this were what inspired the designer of the new Christmas stamps and won over Swiss Post’s staff. If you take a closer look at a snowflake, you will find a unique star to admire. Snow crystals form in cold clouds, where water droplets join together with particles of dust to form a hexagon – a star. The designer dreamt up this ideal Christmas decoration on a winter walk in the forest: “I was watching how the snow crystals covered the fir trees, and I imagined deer, mice and rabbits running around, happily collecting snow crystals to decorate their own Christmas trees.” To balance out the coldness of the season, the Vaudois artist also chose warm and cosy elements for each of the five designs. A concept that won the vote of Swiss Post staff throughout Switzerland.
