Love Padlock Theme of Slovenia Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: January 25, 2013 - Slovenia

Slovenia has issued a new postage stamp honoring the growing tradition of Love Padlocks.

In order to show their commitment to eternal love, Slovene couples have been increasingly hanging padlocks on the Mesarski Most Bridge (Butcher's Bridge) in Ljubljana.

Although no one is certain where the European tradition of hanging love padlocks began, the explanations vary by location, it appears the recent wave of padlocks started appearing in the early 2000s.
