About Centenary of Estonia Postage Stamps

The first Estonian postage stamps “Flower Design” were issued on 24.11.1918 and unlike modern postage stamps, they had to be cut apart. The first postage stamp to include the text “Eesti Vabariik” (the Republic of Estonia) was the postage stamp “Seagull” issued on 13.05.1919. The definitive stamps with three heraldic lions came into use on 24.09.1928, the charity publication “Caritas” issued the first Estonian souvenir sheet on 21.01.1938.
