Sastamala is a town and municipality of Finland. It was created January 1, 2009, when the municipalities of Vammala, Äetsä and Mouhijärvi were consolidated into a single town. (source : Wikipedia)

Sastamala has a number of interesting places to visit, including a comprehensive suite of cultural events mostly held in the summer. However, the most spectacular sight is Kokemäenjoki (Kokemäki river) and the lakes it forms north-east of Vammala (Rautavesi and Kulovesi) . The water system is one of the twenty-seven national landscapes in Finland.

The most interesting about this stamp ........

Preserve the Polar Regions and Glaciers!

In 2009, Finland, Chile and about 40 other countries will issue stamps on climate change. The common theme is Preserve the Polar Regions and Glaciers. The international stamp campaign is being coordinated by Itella’s Philatelic Centre in Finland.
Each participant country will issue its stamps on its own schedule in the period January-March 2009. Each country will also decide independently on the illustration theme for its issue.
