Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Features On Swedish Stamps
Climate activist Greta Thunberg is to feature on a set of stamps issued by Sweden's postal service.
She will join a hall of fame of Swedish personalities, from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Greta Garbo, who have been depicted on the country's postage stamps.
The stamps go on sale from PostNord on Thursday and show Thunberg in her familiar yellow raincoat standing on a rocky coast looking out at a flock of birds.
"We hope that, as a big company, we can shine a light on the very important climate question, with the help of a little stamp," said Kristina Olofsdotter, head of PostNord's stamp division.
Several million of the stamps will be issued, Olofsdotter said, adding: "There will be a lot of Gretas flying around."
Thunberg rose to global fame in 2018 after she began skipping school to protest, alone with a homemade sign, outside the Swedish parliament in Stockholm, demanding that her government take action on climate change.
