About Stamp
The maple leaf has symbolized Canada from its earliest days when settlers first admired the brightly coloured maple leaves of autumn, and in 1965 the maple leaf actually became the country's national emblem through its use on our flag. Raymond Bellemare's now familiar maple leaf design illustrates this issue of definitive postage stamps reflecting the new postal rates. Included are a 32-cent stamp in both sheet and coil formats; a 50-cent vending machine booklet containing one 32-cent stamp, one 8-cent stamp and two 5-cent stamps are featuring a line drawing of one of the ten provincial legislative buildings on each cover; and an $8 booklet of twenty-five 32-cent stamps. The last booklet, which is not illustrated in this Bulletin, has a line drawing of the Library of Parliament on its cover.
