Stamps on Hockey – Typically Dutch -Netherlands 2022.
Hockey is a major sport in the Netherlands, with over 250,000 active hockey players based at more than 300 clubs across the country. They play field hockey (September-December and March-June) and indoor hockey (December-February). The Dutch women’s and men’s teams have been competing at the highest level for many years. Both teams won many awards, including Olympic titles (women’s team in 1984, 2008, 2012 and 2020, men’s team in 1996 and 2000). The women’s team has won the world title eleven times, while the men’s team has won it three times.
The Nexa Thin and Nexa Rust (Svet Simov, Fontfabric, 2012) fonts have been used for the text on the stamps and stamp sheet.
The 2022 stamps for the multi-annual Typically Dutch series were once again designed by Total Design from Amsterdam. And once again, they carefully researched the subject, this time exploring sports that are typically Dutch.
