North Pole meets South Pole
blog-thumbnail

Today’s stamps from Greenland are called pole to pole and are a part of the joint issue with New Zealand post. The title “pole to pole” refers to the Arctic and Antarctic poles. The souvenir stamp sheet displays a polar bear at the North Pole and a special type of penguin named the Chinstrap penguin in the South Pole.

Greenland, the second largest continent after Australia represents the Arctic pole in the picture and the Ross dependency, a New Zealand claimed region in Antarctica is seen at the South Pole. New Zealand issues special edition of stamps to be used for letters sent from the Ross Dependency region.

It is interesting to know that even in such extreme weather conditions, humans not only inhabit these parts of land but are also connected through postal services.
