Canada Post has issued a new stamp celebrating same-sex marriage.

As part of Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations, the agency unveiled the stamp on Tuesday at a LGBT community center in Toronto.

CTV reports:

The maple-leaf-shaped stamp shows an image of a rainbow flag and the words “marriage equality” in both French and English.

Canada Post is issuing 10 special stamps to honour key moments in Canada’s 150-year history.

It says the day in 2005 when same-sex marriage became legal across the country is one of the milestones that have shaped Canada.

The stamp will be available on June 1st.
