One of the Great Footballers
Ronaldo “The Phenomenon” Luis Nazario de Lima
The World Cup fever may be over, but the love of the sport sure is not. If you’ve been a fan of the sport for some time, it is likely that you know that one of the greatest players to ever grace the sport is Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima – the original Ronaldo, dubbed simply as O Fenômeno ("The Phenomenon"). This month of September, he celebrates the 42nd anniversary of his birth.
Ronaldo, is considered by many as one of the greatest football players of all time. His impact as a striker has enabled him to score 247 field goals in his professional career as well as 15 field goals at the FIFA world cup, currently ranking 2nd in players with the most field goals in the tournament. Aside from leading Brazil to their fifth World Cup title in 2002, his is also a winner of the golden boot and a three-time FIFA World Player of the year. He is also considered by many as the 2nd best striker next to Pele.


Easily one of the most complete players in the game, what made Ronaldo very effective was his devastating turn of pace, acceleration, quick dribbling, and clinical finishing skills. Unfortunately, due to injuries, Ronaldo had to retire from football in 2011. Nevertheless, his influence in the game will forever inspire current and upcoming footballers.
After retiring, Ronaldo continued his work as a United Nations Development Program Goodwill Ambassador, a position he was appointed back in 2000. He served as an ambassador for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  
In 2010, Comoro Islands issued Brazilian Football Players stamps and one of them features Ronaldo. You can find the stamp here in our catalogue.

Sports in Greenland
This great issue by POST Greenland is the third and final issue in the series Sports in Greenland, and the three stamps in this issue takes the series to a total of nine stamps. The entire series has been created by Miki Jacobsen, who has designed stamps for POST Greenland since 1992.
This issue focuses on the three characteristic Inuit or Dene sports with a long history - Arm Pull, Two Foot High Kick, and Pole Push. These sports all go back to an earlier era, where physical strength and endurance was of immense importance. The games were often played in the winter, when raging snowstorms and darkness ruled. The games worked as entertainment for the Inuit, but they were also a great way to train and maintain physical skills needed, such as precision, strength, and endurance.
Today the various games are included in the Arctic Winter Games, a bi-yearly event held in the Arctic region, where international competitors fight for glory. The event was held in Greenland in 2016, and it will take place in Canada's Northwestern Territories this year.
Arm Pull
The Arm Pull is a traditional tug-of-war game, where two competitors interlock legs and elbows. The objective is to pull the opponent over, or break the elbow lock.


This game requires high levels of power and strength in the athletes, and because of the simple setup, it can be played practically anywhere, making it an ideal game for the unruly winter.
Two Foot High Kick
This game, originating from Alaska, is highly technical and requires a great deal of skill to perfect. A target, often in the form of a seal skin ball, is suspended in the air. The athlete will have to walk or run up to the target, where he or she will jump off both feet, kick or touch the target with both feet, and land on both feet.


This task might not seem very difficult, but when the target is suspended at or above your own height, the difficulty suddenly increases. The Two Foot High Kick is very demanding and requires great balance in order to secure that the athlete lands properly. A popular alternative is the One Foot High Kick, where you jump on both feet, kick the target with one foot, and land on the same foot that was used for kicking. Both of these games requires high degrees of flexibility and control.
Pole Push
Here, two teams line up on either end of a pine pole, and by pushing the pole forward, try to force the other team out of a specified area. The winner is the team that manages to push the center of the pole over the outer barrier.


The game resembles classic tug-of-war, but with pushing instead of pulling, and a pole instead of a rope. The size of the teams can vary greatly, and ranges from 25 players on each team, to individuals competing against each other. The game requires both mental and physical capabilities, as it requires brute force as well as coordination within the team.
The stamps in this issue are denominated at DKK 0.50, DKK 14.50, and DKK 28.50 respectively, and they are available as individual stamps, in sheets of 10 stamps, and in a souvenir sheet. You can find find the stamps at POST Greenland's website.
As mentioned, this is the third and final issue in the Sports in Greenland series. You can find the first and second issue in the series here: Sports in Greenland I - Sports in Greenland II

The Environment in Greenland
Last year POST Greenland started a new series, focused on the environment, and how environmental changes affect Greenland. The second issue in this series is now out, and the two stamps are designed by the artist Gukki Naka, who makes his debut as a stamp artist with this issue.
Although environmental changes have been strongly linked to man-made greenhouse gas emissions for years, too little is being done to counter this. With its position in the Arctic, Greenland is one of the places on Earth, where climate changes are seen clearest. With temperatures rising globally, consequences are stark for the natural inhabitants of the Arctic.


The challenges are depicted in this stamp, where we see a Polar Bear swimming in the ocean, as the climate changes are taking away the ice that is essential for the life of the Polar Bear. The darkness of the stamp underlines the severity of the situation.

The rate of thawing that happens at the Greenlandic icecaps has doubled since 2008, and the rate has increased seven-fold since 1995. If the development is allowed to continue at this rate, soon there might no longer be ice in the Arctic during the summer. This will have global consequences due to rising sea levels.


The design of the second stamp in the set is named Fatamorgana, and speaks to the issue of massive ice thaw as well. The stamp depicts an iceberg in dark colors, and with several layers with different degrees of transparency. The effects make the iceberg seem as if it is shrinking in size, while warning of the ice-less future. Both stamps are very artistic in their expression, resulting in a beautiful, thought-provoking issue.
The stamps are only available as self-adhesive stamps, and they are denominated at DKK 20.00 and DKK 23.50 respectively. You can find the issue at Post Greenland's website.
As mentioned, this is part two of the Environment in Greenland series. you can find part one of the series here.

A Magical Issue
On the 16th of October, the philatelic world becomes just a little more magical, as the much anticipated Harry Potter issue by Royal Mail is set to be released on this date.
These books by J.K. Rowling, which inspired an entire generation to read, have since been transformed into a marvelous series of Warner Bros. movies, which filled us with excitement for the 10 years from the first to the last movie.
The issue consists of 15 stamps, and every stamp depicts one of the main characters of the movie, or magical modes of transportation from the movies.


In two se-tenant strips of 5, five of the main characters are displayed, and for avid Harry Potter fans this will be a pleasant reunion with Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley, and of course Harry Potter.
The remaining 5 stamps on the 2 se-tenants are all modes of transportation and include the Hogwarts Express, the Flying Ford Anglia, Hagrids motorbike, the Knight Bus, and the Triwizard Cup.
The remaining 5 stamps are issued in a souvenir sheet, and depict 5 professors on the Marauders Map. The professors depicted are professors Sprout, Slughorn, Trelawney, Lupin, and Snape.
In order to make the issues even more magical, Royal Mail has included hidden designs on all stamps, which can only be seen under ultraviolet light.
