This brand is dedicated to the Scouts living all over the world, whose patron saint is the infuriated dragon killer St. George. The special postage stamp therefore appears on Georgstag, which falls on the 23rd of April. The theme was clearly defined in the figure of the saint. The artists invited to work on the designs were made aware of the many depictions of the fine arts throughout history. Mentioned as a typical example is the wood group of the medieval master Bernt Notke, which is located in Stockholm. Bert Jäger has come up with a draft. The graphic artists Eugen O. Sporer and Ernst Adolf Wuttke each sent two proposals, Prof. Eduard Ege and Herbert Kern three suggestions each. It has been shown that the faithful reproduction of a certain historical image on the mark does not give the desired freshness and originality, but leads to a certain academic brittleness. The meticulous attention to many details also gives the impression of a strong reduction. In his election, the Art Advisory Board was guided by the intention to find a popular solution, which nevertheless fulfills higher demands on the graphic form and proves to be of our time. The Federal Minister for the Post and Telecommunications has given his consent to the execution of the proposed work of Prof. Eduard Ege. The brand impresses with its cheerful vitality. Quite casually, the trinity of horse, rider and monster merges into a clearly structured, self-contained group that fills the middle plane in good harmony with the value number and is flanked by the text lines on the right and left. Bundesdruckerei Berlin produced the steel engraving and the monochrome printing in green.
