Special stamp congratulations and mourning 2023

Special occasions deserve stamps that are in line with the respective event, which is why Austrian Post has now issued two special stamps for sending congratulations and condolences.

The message is inscribed in the wording "Congratulations" and "In loving memory". The colourful, cheerful floral motif is suitable as a stamp for many kinds of congratulatory letters: for birthday wishes, weddings, passed exams, and much more. Flowers are not only a popular gift, but also serve as attractive postage for a postcard or card sent for a special event. 

The condolence stamp features a black feather. Feathers symbolically connect heaven and earth, the earthly and the divine. The black feather is a sign of mourning, but also of strength¬ – a simple but dignified motif for an obituary or a letter of condolence.
