Beautiful Flowers from Morocco

These beautiful stamps on flowers from Morocoo were issued in 1965, printed on granite paper. The flowers featured on the stamps are Iris, Gladiolus and Capparis.

These stamps were printed in sheets of 10 comprising 5 tete-beche sets in each sheet. The stamps displayed are the set forming a tete-beche variety. Interesting thing to note is that the stamps were printed in 1964 and released in early 1965.

These flowers are endemic to North African region but may be found in other areas as well.
