'BLUENOSE' The Canadian Icon!

Widely cited among philatelists to be the most popular stamp design from Canada, the 1929 50c blue depicting the fishing schooner 'Bluenose' is certainly a very attractive stamp deserving of praise, not only for it's design but also for it's superb engraving.

The subject of the stamp was built in 1921 as Nova Scotia's challenger for the "International Trophy", a working boats' version of the prestigious 'America's Cup', she won on her first attempt in 1921. The boat then maintained an unbeaten run for the next 17 years including the last event, held in 1938.

In 1942 she was sold to a freight carrier and taken to work in the West Indies where in 1946 she foundered on a reef near Haiti and broke up. This iconic boat was honoured by being placed in the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 1955 and in 1983 a full scale replica, 'Bluenose II', was built and is now used as Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador.
