Comment: And here 3 stamps, from a project from the city Nijmegen, issued in 2004, with the name "butterfly mail". The city of Nijmegen initiated this Butterfly mail and not the Dutch post. They could do so by using the former personalised stamps. The set consist of 6 stamps, with 5 butterflies on the, envelopes, and a poststamp, and you could buy them at the turistic office, and an artgalery. These stamps can be used on mail of course!
