“I can’t think of a better place to unveil these beautiful stamps,” said Lisse Garrett, the USPS Iowa-Nebraska-South Dakota District manager, who spoke at the ceremony.

Other participants included Michelle Wheatley, the memorial’s superintendent; Jay Bigalke, editor of Linn’s Stamp News; and Mark Inglett, strategic communications acting manager for the Postal Service’s Central Area.

The four stamps depict Old Glory majestically waving at different times of day. In each image, the sun is shining on the flag.

Ethel Kessler, an art director for USPS, designed the stamps with illustrations by Laura Stutzman.

The U.S. Flags stamps are available in books of 20 and coils of 100, 3,000 and 10,000 at Post Offices and usps.com.
