Singapore 2013 Our City in a Garden - Singapore’s First Biodegradable Commemorative Stamp with Real Flower Seeds



Issue date 13 July 2013

In 1963, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew started the greening campaign to make Singapore a garden city by planting the first tree.

Over the years with a network of green reserves, parks, tree lined roads and other natural areas have made living in Singapore pleasant.

To commemorate 50 years of greening, Singapore Post has issued four stamps of denomination 1st local, 50 cents, 80 cents and SGD 1.10. The 1st local Stamp features Singapore’s first biodegradable commemorative stamp with real flower seeds of the Portulaca Grandiflora for planting.
