Twenty-five of each pansy.

The two Permanent rate stamps each feature a colorful pansy variety. A yellow-accent true blue Delta Light Blue. And a Midnight Glow Icicle Pansy in shades of purple, pink, orange and yellow.

Traditionally, the images on the annual floral stamps are photographic. In 2015, the design took a romantic illustration approach.

First-time stamp illustrator Laurie Koss is the creater of the images. And she shows the intense and intimate study of natural form, light and movement of the flower.

The Pansy, which comes from the French word pensée, means thought or remembrance. And former Newfoundland governor and English naval officer Lord James Gambier, and gardener William Thompson, produced the flower in 1839. They did this by crossing various species of the viola.

The Canada stamp prices range from a booklet of 10 for $8.50CDN to 50 stamp coil for $42.50.

And the Official First Day Cover cancellation was in Pansy, Manitoba. And yes, there is a Pansy, Manitoba. To purchase philatelic products, please visit canadapost.ca/shop.
