The first definitive printed specifically to meet the new 25¢ rate pictured "Old Glory" waving against a light-blue sky filled with billowy cumulus clouds. Although flags have been featured as a major design element on stamps since 1957, many of them have been depicted flying over a national landmark. The Flag and Clouds stamp, the 15th in the Flag series, was issued in sheet, coil, and booklet form.
