USPS to dedicate Peace Rose stamp
March 30, 2018
The U.S. Postal Service is issuing a new Forever stamp celebrating one of the most popular roses of all time. The new Peace Rose Forever stamp features a detail from a photograph of the rose’s blossom, its creamy yellow petals touched at the edges with pink. The peace rose revolutionized hybrid tea roses with its unique coloring, hardiness and disease resistance. Art director Ethel Kessler designed the stamp with an existing photograph taken by Richard C. Baer. News of the stamp is being shared with the hashtags #PeaceRoseStamp and #FlowerStamps.
