g & section sign?


2 June 1999, Denmark
150th Anniversary of Danish Constitution
design: Camilla Jorgensen

“g” is an initial letter of “grundlov” – the Danish word for constitution.  Then what is §?  My stamp catalogue says it is Paragraph sign, but wikipedia says it is Section sign.  What it really means is ambiguous… but nice and clean stamp!

「g」は規約という意味のデンマーク語 grundlov の頭文字。では「§」は?切手カタログには「段落記号」と出ているのですが、調べると「節記号」が正しいようです。ここまで分かっても、この記号が何を象徴しているのか未だ?ですが、すっきりしたデザインが好きです。
