Norwegian 2021 stamp issues & designers

Subjects and release dates for Norwegian 2021 stamp issues are available. Norwegian post office, Posten, doesn’t have images for the stamps yet, but, as usual, I’ll add them as they come available. Remember to follow Bitter Grounds (links at the bottom of the article) or bookmark this page.

Posten’s website has an archive of previous stamp magazines, Posten Norge Stamp Magazine, dating back to 2016. 5 magazines are published a year and you can download them for future references. If you want to keep the magazine, rather than just read it online, right click on the words “PDF File” and save. It’s available in English as well as Norwegian.

This year will see designer Magnus Rakeng return with a Peter I Island stamp. Rakeng has created a number of sleek fonts you can check out here Nyheter – Melkeveien. He also designed last year’s Polar Motif stamp depicting Jan Mayen island. Other familiar designers are Enzo Finger, Kristin Slotterøy, Camilla Kvien Jensen and Jørn O. Jøntvedt, all of whom contributed designs in 2020.

Subjects for Norway’s 2021 issues will include:

  • Polar motifs
  • City Anniversaries
  • Endangered National Wildlife
  • Railway Centenary
  • Norwegian Association of Hunters and Anglers 150th Anniversary,
  • Farm Animals
  • Research, Innovation, Technology
  • Motorbikes
  • Flag Bicentenary
  • Christmas stamps
