This set of stamps contains the two stamps from the Love 2017 stamp issue.

The heart and the red rose have long been symbols of steadfastness and devotion. The 13th century French poem Roman de la Rose identified the rose with romantic passion and in 1794, Scotland’s bard, Robert Burns, famously compared his sweetheart to this exquisite bloom.

This stamp issue introduces new designs for social mail users and event organisers.
