Northern Ireland - Giants Causeway (2001)

In 1958 when the first regional definitives were issued, there were perceived to be some particular problems creating the Northern Ireland definitives because of a lack of symbols that might be used to represent Northern Ireland while avoiding contentious political symbolism. In 2001, images of the Giants Causeway, patchwork fields and linen and vase patterns were used.
