The stamps will go on sale at Postnord on Thursday and are scheduled to be printed in millions of copies.
“We hope that as a large company, we can shed light on a very important climate change issue with a small stamp,” the company’s director of stamping Kristina Olofsdotter says.
Swedish stamps have previously contained images of world-famous Swedes. A football player, among others, has received his own stamps Zlatan Ibrahimovic, film actor Greta Garbo , author Astrid Lindgren and music producer Avicii.
In January Greta Thunberg, 18, rose to international fame in 2018 when she went on a school strike to draw attention to climate change.
Thunberg began protesting alone in front of the Swedish Parliament, but in the coming months, more than two million schoolchildren from 135 countries joined the ranks.
Other stamps related to the environmental theme are published in the same stamp collection as Thunberg’s image, including images of Swedish mountain landscapes, lakes and forests.
