On June 10, 2008 Belpost issued a set of twelve definitive stamps named “Garden Flowers” and the BYR 30 stamp represents a petunia (Petunia hybrid). The BYR 400 wolf (Canis lupus) stamp is part of the definitive series “Wild animals” issued on June 10, 2008. On March 14, 2007 Belarus issued the BYR 2000 definitive stamp “city hall of Minsk” . The BYR 3000 definitive stamp issued on December 20, 2006 depicts the city hall of Shklov.

Alexander from Minsk sent me the stamp, souvenir sheet and FDC celebrating the bicentenary of birth of Louis Braille. Issued on January 4th (date of his birth) the stamp includes the portrait of the French man and hands reading a text in Braille.
The FDC postmark depicts the words "Louis Braille" in Braille.
