Finland - The Land of Thousand Lakes

Hi Pals!
I have brought a beautiful postcard from Finland to share with you. This interesting postcard is made by Finnish Association of Nature Conservation and shows one of the thousand beautiful lakes in Finland. Finland is known as "The Land of Thousand Lakes".
The stamp used on the postcard is also very unique. It is an Odd-Shaped Stamp from Finland, where the Finnish flag is waving out of the perforation of the rectangular stamp. The stamp was issued in 2006.
The monogram of Finnish Association for Nature Conservation is a seal which can be seen on front top-right corner of the postcard and is also water-marked at the rear of the postcard. 
"It is the largest non-governmental organization for environmental protection and nature conservation in Finland. Its objectives include the promotion of sustainable production and consumption patterns and the protection of biodiversity."
Thanks a lot Marika for sending me this nice postcard!
