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.
Pulsatilla slavica is a symbol of the beauty of Slovak flora and - with its big violet blossom - one of the most beautiful of our pulsatillas. It is indigenous to the Western Carpathians. It grows on limestone rock in submontane and mountain regions - and only in Slovakia´s Western Carpathians and in the Khokholov valley in Poland. It is a fully protected and highly endangered species.
In addition to portraying the protected plants in question, stamps in this series also feature the emblem of the European Nature Conservation Year.
