Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo will be featured on a Priority Mail stamp in the new year to celebrate the landmark’s 100th anniversary.

The gardens are on land donated by Queen Liliuokalani, and named in her honor.

The landmark features Japanese influences, and includes tropical flowers and a view of Mauna Kea.

The stamp depicts one of the gardens’ most iconic structures, the red wooden shelter on a stone bridge spanning a portion of the pond. The bridge is surrounded by three stone lanterns and lush tropical plants.

Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamp with original art by Dan Cosgrove.
