First ever U.S. Maui stamp unveiled

The first ever United States Postal Service (USPS) stamp to depict Maui – an island in the mid-Pacific Ocean belonging to the Hawaiian island chain – will be launched June 2 at the Makawao Post Office.

The forthcoming U.S. Forever Stamp depicts Maui’s famed Haleakalā National Park with a rainbow in its crater. Part of a sheet of 16 Forever Stamps each depicting a national park, the Maui stamp marks the centennial of the U.S. National Park Service.

The Maui stamp belongs to a sheet of 16 Forever Stamps, each depicting a U.S. national park in celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary.

Kevin Ebi, the Seattle photographer who took the Haleakalā photograph, said in a press release: “National parks take us into a different world, a world of jaw-dropping scenery and experiences that are dramatically different from our daily lives. Such was the case that afternoon I spent chasing Haleakalā’s rainbows.”

USPS Postmaster General Megan Brennan is also slated to dedicate the sheet in a first day-of-issue ceremony at the highly anticipated World Stamp Show, which opens today and runs until June 4.
