Signs of the Zodiac Theme of New Postage Stamps

First Day of Issue: February 20, 2013 - Canada

Canada has issued a the final four postage stamps in their 12-part series "Signs of the Zodiac" which began in 2011.

The stamps, each printed in the vivid colours traditionally associated with their respective sky sign, feature a layering of astrological symbolism and a highly stylized representation of each constellation. This colour scheme and adherence to the symbolic language used for ages to map the night sky is also prevalent in the Official First Day Covers.
