The traditional and popular Christmas stamps are presented in oriental style this year, which is reflected in the choice of colours and detailing in gold. The four self-adhesive square special stamps are available in sheets of 20 or individually.
With her choice of motifs, designer Sereina Hatt establishes a connection to the Christmas story of Christianity.

 

On the stamp "The Guiding Star" (face value: CHF 0.85), the star that pointed the way to Bethlehem for the Three Wise Men takes centre stage. "The Shepherd" (face value: CHF 1.00), symbolically represented by a sheep, refers to the shepherds who, after an angel proclaimed the birth of Jesus, also set out to see the Son of God lying in a manger.


The "Holy Spirit" (face value: CHF 1.50), who had come upon Mary as the Spirit of God and made her conceive her son nine months earlier, appears in the form of a dove like in the Bible. A candle flanked by a plant represents "The Gifts" (face value: CHF 2.00), which the Wise Men from the East offered to the Saviour.
