Cycle Chic Stamp

There's little doubt that we take the Cycling Girl seriously as a Danish icon. Here's a Danish stamp from 1975 celebrating the launch of the United Nations' Decade for Women. 1975 was also the International Woman's Year. See... it's not just us.

Thanks to Lefa, who blogged about the stamp here, with more info about the Decade for Women.

And here's my favourite statue in Copenhagen. The Cycling Girl high about the city.

...and the only statue we foreigners associate with the city is the little mermaid...!
