Sunday Stamps #4


This stamp came to me on a Postcrossing postcard from Latvia.  I don't know what it is commemorating, but I suspect it is the Soviet Occupation of Latvia, given the dates of 1941 - 1991.

"Sunday Stamps"! I like the way that rolls off the tongue...you should start a new meme...!
Is that a sacred heart? An unusual image for the Soviet occupation...interesting stamp.
