Post & Go ~ Union Flag Stamp

Post & Go Union Flag Stamp
newly redesigned Post & Go version of 2001’s Union Flag stamp
in honour of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

In the year of the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II and the XXX Olympiad and the XIV Paralympic Games, Royal Mail issued a Faststamp illustrated with the Union Flag, as first used in the Submarine Centenary miniature sheet issued in 2001. It was later reformatted and issued in definitive size for the Smilers® range in 2005 when it was also issued in a retail stamp book.

Now it is available as a pictorial stamp from Post & Go machines in 146 branches in time for the Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday celebrations from 2-5 June. As before, these will also be sold from the Philatelic Bureau at Tallents House in a special pack.

Post & Go terminals allow customers to weigh their letters and packets, pay for and print postage labels and stamps without the need to visit the counter. The first Post & Go machine was trialled in The Galleries Post Office® in Bristol in 2008.

The labels can be obtained with 6 different service indicators: 1st class & 1st class Large up to 100g, Europe up to 20g, Worldwide up to 10g, 20g and 40g, singly or in strips of up to 5 of the same value or various values. Thus there are 6 different stamps in total.
