Triskelion Definitives

Friday, 10 February 2017  |  Gareth

These vibrant stamps are the very first variable value definitive stamps Isle of Man Post Office has produced. Each stamp features a unique design of the renowned Manx emblem, the Three Legs of Man. The 4 variations of this emblem are based upon:

  • The Three legs as they appear in Douglas Town Hall
  • The Millenium of Tynwald three legs
  • The three legs as seen on the old brewery building on Castletown Quay
  • A modern analysis of the three legs of man.

The legs normally run clockwise and carry the Latin motto 'Quocunque Jeceris Stabit' meaning 'whichever way you throw, I stand', a referral to the independence and strength of the Manx people.
