Sweden doesn’t release very many stamps each year but and 2022 will be no exception with a total of 59 face different in just nine different issues scheduled starting with three sets on 13 January.  The twelve stamps in this first batch include a Queen Silvia definitive stamp in a traditional style while the stamps marking the centenaries of artist  Povel Ramel and the Swedish Institute of Standards (SIS) portray more modern Swedish design. Two additional January sets will be issued on the 28th commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Swedish Navy with a miniature sheet of three and Sweden’s national flower, the small bluebell, which was chosen just last year. A booklet of ten portrays the finalists while the bluebell also adorns coil stamps in two denominations.  The designs of the latter two sets have not yet been publicized but will be added to this post when they are.

Five colorful stamp designs to brighten up your card or envelope.  A popular artist with incredible breadth. Povel Ramel’s artistry ranges from songs, monologues, poems, paintings, drawings, film, radio, revue and television, songbooks, cooking, drinking songs and scholarship awards.

From the Philatelic Bulletin:

For international mail, we offer a booklet commemorating the centenary of the Swedish Institute for Standards, SIS. Our everyday lives are filled with standards, and even if we don’t give them a second thought, they make many things easier, including making our lives safer and more sustainable. The issue also includes a coil, with postage for domestic letters, highlighting the importance of an environmentally sustainable society. The stamp issue contains a booklet for international letters and a coil for domestic letters. We see some familiar situations. You may not think about it, but a large number of standards help make our daily lives simpler and safer. Isn’t it great to have size labels and to know that things we use are safe! Standardization is also of great importance for the development of Swedish welfare, sustainability and competitiveness.
