(Small Notes for the issue)
To commemorate the fourth International Polar Year (2007-2009) and drawing attention to protection of polar regions and glaciers, a joint project of 42 countries set up at the initiative of the presidents of Finland and Chile. The official emblem of an ice crystal and the word "Preserve the Polar Regions and Glaciers" were adopted as a common feature of all miniature sheets. For the first time, Japan Post has produced a hologram stamp.
