Curacao

Location - The Atlantic - 07 34 N, 033 48 W

This is another stamp from Curacao & I think it must be depicting the Queen of Netherland. I like it because it is actually issued on behalf of the Island of Curacao & that it shows the kind of buildings that this Island is famous for. If you check my regular blog, you'll see a picture of this type of buildings there.

I also like this stamp, because at first sight its not arresting to look at & doesn't have very jazzy graphics, but it does have a reserved regal look about it that does look nice the more you look at it.

PS: Thanks Msyanwu for the comment & the cover.

It's not our present queen Beatrix but her mother Juliana, who was queen from 1948 till 1980.
