US Postal Service Celebrate The Mathematical Beauty of Flowers

The United States is celebrating the mathematical symmetry of flowers with the issuing of two high-denomination stamps without a ceremony.

The $2 and $5 floral geometry stamps are designed for packages, large envelopes and other mailings.

Nature is a resevoire of patterns and beauties which have inspired artists. These floral geometry stamps explore the patterns found in nature’s symmetry of flowers.

The Design

The stamps’ art features a series of overlapping geometric shapes — including circles, ovals and triangles — that reflect the symmetry of floral patterns found in nature in their simplest forms. For these two stamps, the designs become more complex as the denominations rise. The watercolor backgrounds were painted by hand and then scanned; the white geometric lines and typography were added digitally. The background for the $2 stamp is green, and the $5 stamp’s background is purple. The stamps were printed with a foil treatment that adds an elegant glimmer. 

The $2 Floral Geometry stamp will be issued in panes of 10 stamps, and the $5 Floral Geometry stamp will be issued in panes of four. 

You can purchase this stamp and other philatelic products through the Postal Store at, by calling 844-737-7826, by mail through USA Philatelic or at Post Office locations nationwide. Information for ordering first-day-of-issue postmarks and covers is at
