Stamps are the story of us, and what a powerful story they each tell. America's greatest people, places and moments are memorialized here, honored in the art and story of commemorative stamps.
Here, Heritage is our Hero®.
Plants have long been subjects of artistic fascination—from cave drawings to medieval religious paintings. Not until the Baroque period in Europe, however, did flowers take center stage. Among the most sought-after paintings were those of Dutch and Flemish artists. Their intricate, canvas designs complimented the exuberant, massed floral arrangements exuding wild abandon. The paintings featured on the new Forever® stamps were inspired by the tradition of these Baroque floral artists and depict flowers common to American gardens.
