Arago: Exhibits


Guam: The Island

In the modern period the United States has issued three stamps highlighting the beauty of Guam. Hagatna Bay, portrayed in the 2007 stamp on the left, illustrates the serene beauty and landscape that defines Guam.

Well known for its many coral reefs, the rich marine life of Guam was celebrated in 2004 with the issuance of the Pacific Coral Reef stamps depicting the coral reefs of Guam. The island boasts approximately 250 coral species and 6,000 marine species, including the black-spotted puffer, threadfin butterfly fish and staghorn coral shown in the 37-cent stamp featured here.

Guam was again featured on a stamp in 2008 as part of the Flags of Our Nations series.
