In 2022, 26 important events in Estonia will be depicted on postage stamps

Postage stamps that will be issued, depict important events and people in our country and society.
The first two postage stamps of the year will be issued on 6 January. In the series of postage stamps dedicated to Estonian churches, a postage stamp of St Mary’s Church in Tartu will be issued, as well as a postage stamp for the Beijing Winter Olympics in cooperation with the Estonian Olympic Committee. During the year, several other historical anniversaries will be depicted on our postage stamps, such as Johan Pitka 150, the Society of Estonian Literati 150, the Town Hall Pharmacy 600, the Tennis Association 100, the first mention of the Town Hall 700, and the Livonian Diet 600.
Postage stamps will also be issued to celebrate the beauty of Estonian nature: postage stamps are planned for the Eurasian woodcock, the curly birch, and the flying squirrel. A postage stamp specially designed for children will be issued for the International Day for Protection of Children, a charity postage stamp will be issued in September in cooperation with the Estonian Cancer Society, and a postage stamp with a very exciting special solution for raising road traffic safety awareness will be issued in November. Traditional Christmas stamps, the next postage stamp of the Gold Foundation of the Art Museum of Estonia, and several other postage stamps are also planned.

Pursuant to the rules of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the theme and design of a postage stamp must be closely related with the cultural identity of the issuing country, help spread culture and peace, be free of politics, and must not be offensive towards a person or a country.
When it comes to anniversaries or events, stamps usually celebrate major milestones such as 100, 125, 150, etc. Postage stamps of living persons are normally only in case of presidents and Olympic medalists.

The postage stamp plan can also be found in the e-shop of Omniva.
