From all the flowers in the world, maybe the rose is best known as a symbol of love, secrecy and beauty. It inspired poets or great novelists as well as painters and musicians but closer to our times great theatre and film directors.
This year, Romfilatelia, the specialized company in issuing and trading philatelic items in Romania, continues the tradition of the philatelic issues having as subject the flora by releasing a postage stamps issue dedicated to these special flowers. The variety of roses reproduced on the stamps was created at the Garden Research Station from Cluj, by Mr. Stefan Wagner.
