European Nature Conservation Year 1995 is taking place on the initiative of the Council of Europe. To mark the occasion a series of stamps is being issued portraying Slovakia´s protected plants.

Ciminalis clusii is exceptionally beautiful and the most attractive of the gentiana genus. In Slovakia it grows on hills (the Slovenský kras area) and right up to the highest reaches in the Belianske Tatry mountains. It is a fully protected species, classified as an endangered taxon in our highlands and already rare in many places.

In addition to portraying the protected plants in question, stamps in this series also feature the emblem of the European Nature Conservation Year.
