windmill of New City? / 木造の風車

August 15, 2009

1967Finland003

19 April 1967, Finlan
350th Anniversary of Uusikaupunki in Nystad
designer: O. Vepsäläinen
Recess and Litho

My translator says New City, but yet to search.  It seems celebrating 50 years of a place, where an old wooden windmill is and has Two Fish coat of arms.

翻訳ソフトでは「New City」と訳したのだけど、詳細は不明。風車があって2匹の魚が紋章になっている場所の350周年を記念しているのではないかと思われます。

      Thank you for your comment and I saw your pictures. Beautiful windmills! It is 47 years since this stamp was made – I hope this windmill in Nystad is still there.
