Dedication ceremony for new Wyoming state flag stamp set for Aug. 23

The Wyoming Postal Service honors Wyoming and the state flag with a dedication ceremony for the Wyoming stamp August 23 at 2 p.m., at the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne.

A part of the new "First Class, Flags or our Nation" series, the public and press are invited to this free event.

“With the release of this impressive stamp we pay homage to the majesty of our state’s flag,” Wyoming Postal Operations Manager Gary Sims said.

Sims will join Governor Matt Mead, Wyoming History Professor Dr. Phillip J. Roberts, and Post Office Operations Manager Catherine Wright during the ceremony.

The stamp is included in the final set of “Flags of Our Nation” stamps, available for nationwide purchase. The stamps are only available on a roll which includes similar flag stamps from other states and territories. The flag stamps are sold as a series, in a coil of 50 stamps only, priced at $22.50. The “Wyoming Flag” Stamp is part of the series and is not sold separately. Stamps will be available in local Post Offices on Aug. 17.
The Wyoming State Museum is located at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. For more information about this or other State Museum programs, please call 777-7021.
