Stamps CHF 1.10+0.55 «Traditional costume», Sheetlet with 10 stamps

Dialogue is as much a part of Swiss culture as the Alphorn and traditional costume. With the 2023 stamps, the Pro Patria foundation provides a little friendly prompt for lively communication across language and cultural borders. What would you write or stick into the speech bubble? Reach out and speak to each other – that’s the motivational key message of these special stamps. The speech bubble in the design represents an open invitation to talk. The language is neither here nor there. Take one of the stickers on the sheet with typical expressions and idioms from all four language regions and stick it onto a speech bubble, or write a message of your own in an empty bubble – in your own dialect if you like. The ready-made stickers encourage you to send a message in a language other than your own. This is Pro Patria’s way of emphasizing the importance of language diversity and skills for cultural exchange within Switzerland. Living a tolerant life in a diverse culture means creating cohesion. Since its foundation in 1909, Pro Patria has been committed to a Switzerland that, through its diversity, creates a home for everyone. This year, Switzerland is also celebrating 175 years of the Federal Constitution, the document that provides the basis for our social values and the foundation of our direct democracy. A willingness to talk and dialogue between the different language regions and cultures are prerequisites for a living and functioning democracy. The Pro Patria stamps dedicated to our country’s culture of dialogue should therefore also be understood as a contribution to the activities celebrating the anniversary of the Federal Constitution. And there’s something new, too: for the first time in over 80 years, the Pro Patria stamps are self-adhesive!


The speech bubbles can be detached and stuck onto the stamps.
