Canada's First Fabric Stamp

This fabric stamp celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Canadian flag just in time for Canada Day. Aimed at collectors the stamp was designed by Kosta Tsetsekas and created by applying ink to a satin rayon fabric. The image also honours Joan O’Malley, daughter of a then government official, who sewed prototypes of the flag during Canada’s great flag debate. The back of the souvenir sheet displays Canada’s flag flying.

The fabric stamp is available on a limited basis with only 300,000 for sale.
