About Christmas 2018 - (Special Cover without Stamp C6)

What should the 2018 Christmas stamps look like? In a survey in November 2017, Swiss Post asked its customers which motifs they would like to see on this year’s stamps. Three chosen designers were given a brief based on the results.

The resulting drafts were put before the public in an online vote, and the winning design was a photograph. Its author Martin Mägli later provided three additional motifs, all of which depict buildings in a winter wonderland, photographed in the “blue hour”, shortly before nightfall.

The castle in Bottmingen in the Canton of Basel-Land, built in the 13th century, is now used as a restaurant and venue for banquets, weddings and other celebratory events.

Located at the bottom of the Kander Valley, Kandersteg is the starting point for the Lötschberg car train on the Berne side. It is a reformed church built in 1511.
