The most famous environmental activist, Greta Thunberg, is pictured on a postage stamp in Sweden, with Thunberg standing at the top of rock wearing a yellow raincoat. Birds are flying with a rapid speed around her while Thunberg is enjoying it with open arms.
The stamp was issued to recognize her work on “Sweden’s unique nature conservation for future generations”.
Eighteen-year-old Greta Thunberg is already known around the world for her work on climate change. The stamp, with Thunberg’s picture, went on sale on Thursday, January 14th.

“These natural places are significant, and we all need to work from our position to preserve them,” she said.
According to a British newspaper report, The Guardian, the Swedish government recognized Greta Thunberg for her work in “preserving Sweden’s unique nature for future generations.”
