Butterfly Stamps from India Post Postage stamps Ever since, Penny Black, issued on 1st May 1840, in the United Kingdom, postage stamps have gone beyond the main purpose as evidence of pay- ment of postage. All countries in the world issue postage stamps periodi- cally on various themes. In India Although the Indian Post Office was established in 1837, Asia's first adhe- sive stamp, the Scinde Dawk, was introduced in 1852 by the British East India Company. The First Stamp of Independent India was issued on 21 No- vember 1947. It depicts the Indian Flag with the patriots' slogan, Jai Hind (Long Live India), on the top right hand corner. It was valued at three and one-half annas. 1981 1993 Butterfly Motif 2000 Northern Jungle Queen, Map, Red Lacewing & Kaiser-e– Hind 1989 Tawny Coster Butterfly Motif
