Estonian Stamp Honors the City of Sindi

First Day of Issue: March 28, 2013 - Estonia

Estonia has issued a new definitive postage stamp honoring the city of Sindi.

Sindi is a town in Pärnu County, Estonia and lies on the left bank of the Pärnu river. The city has 62 listed heritage sites and two protected environment areas.

The heritage sites include buildings of the Sindi broadcloth factory (established 1834) as well as houses from the first period of Estonia’s independence.

The stamp is the first one in a new series of definitive stamps featuring the coats of arms of Estonian cities.

There are presumably about 4,000 to 8,000 couples of the grey partridge in Estonia at present.
