Slesvig Lion T-Shirt - Slesvig is the Danish name for Schleswig, a region of southern Jutland that is today divided between Denmark and Germany. In 1920, the year this stamp was issued, the Treaty of Versailles provided for a plebiscit, or ballot referendum, to determine authority over the region. The outcome resulted in the division of Slesvig, with Denmark acquiring Northern Slesvig, and Germany the southern portion. The coat of arms of Slesvig features two blue lions on a golden background, and is clearly the inspiration for the design of this stamp. You'll love this Slesvig lion t-shirt.
