FESTIVALS 5713 (1952)
Verses from the Song of Songs provide the theme for this series of stamps.
The figs appearing on the stamp represent the verse from Song of Songs 2:13, "The fig tree putteth forth her green figs."
The lily of the valley is one of the flowers mentioned in 2:1, "I am the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley."
Doves are noted in verse 2:14, "O my dove that art in the clefts of the rock."
The verse 6:11, "I went down into the garden of nuts," is the source for the choice of a cluster of nuts appearing on the stamp.
