Mint - Never Hinged - Very Fine
Used - Very Fine
* Notes about these prices:
- They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
- They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
- They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.
In all countries, the national flag is the single most important symbol of individuality and identity. Canada Post Corporation is proud to continue the tradition of featuring the Maple Leaf Flag on the 40-cent first class rate definitive stamp. Following last year's depiction of the flag against a blue sky, this new stamp features the flag against a background of mountain and forest. It is available in panes of 100 stamps and packs of 10 and 25 stamps. Accepted as a Canadian symbol long before Confederation, the Maple Leaf gained acceptance over the years through its use by national organizations and the military. Toronto designers Gottschalk + Ash International were responsible for all of the Flag stamp designs. This firm has created many other Canadian stamp designs including last year's "Quick Sticks" stamps pack.
Designed by Stuart Bradley Ash. Designed by Katalin Kovats.
