This 22-cent stamp was issued in booklets only and was twice the size of usual booklet stamps. It was first released in 1985 in Waubeka, Wisconsin. It was in Waubeka that teacher Bernard Cigrand and his students celebrated the first Flag Day in 1885.

The stamp features a view of the US Capitol with the city of Washington and the Washington Monument in the background. In the front is a large US flag flying from a flagpole with Abraham Lincoln's words from the Gettysburg Address - "Of the People, By the People, For the People."

The United States issued its first postage stamps in 1847 when Benjamin Franklin was Postmaster General. Since that time, the USPS has issued over 5000 stamps. Each stamp is given a specific number to indicate its place in that number. The stamp in the above photo is number 2116.
