Red Cross 2

赤十字 -その2

15 May 1922, Finland
“Red Cross Fund”
design: Eric Otto Woldemar Ehrström

Since the invasion started, I noticed that I have many Red Cross stamps already, but I wasn’t aware of them. This is one of the earliest issued of those stamps with contribution towards the Red Cross.

In this year, the Red Cross was important in Finland – only 5 years after independence from Russia which was followed by Finnish Civil War. I had a kind of peaceful image of Scandinavian countries, but they were often standing at the front lines against a demanding large country.
