Flags of the World Series: Sint Maarten

Sint Maarten is an island in the northeast Caribbean Sea, approximately 300 km  east of Puerto Rico. The 87-square-kilometre island is divided roughly 60/40 between the French Republic (53 km2) and the Kingdom of the Netherlands (34 km2). On this postcard you see Flag of Sint Maarten. The red symbolizes solidarity and courage, the blue peace and assurance of pardon, and the white purity and faith and there is also coat of arms of Sint Maarten.

Nice stamp from set Birds of Sint Maarten (issued on 31.8.2017.) and cancellation from capital city Philipsburg.

Thank you, Anna!
