Norfolk Island (2015) Landscape

Norfolk_2015

 

Norfolk Island is small island in South Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. It is part of the Commonwealth of Australia, but it has a large degree of self-governance. From the biological point of view, it is famous for its distinct conifer species that is depicted on the Norfolk flag and which is widely popular in Europe, i.e. Araucaria heterophylla. This species can be seen on some of stamps on cover too.

This cover was kindly prepared and sent by the Postmaster of the Norfolk Island Philatelic bureau. Thank you very much!
