Additional Information

Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands has an area of 120 square kilometres, which is divided up into twelve parishes. Each parish is its own administrative district, headed up by a Constable, known locally as a Connétable. Constables are elected by their parishioners and represent their parish in the States of Jersey, the Island’s parliament.

Each of Jersey’s parishes shares its name with its ancient parish church and all twelve have a border with the sea. In addition to the obvious geographical differences, each of the parishes has its own individual personality and characteristics. 

Artist Lauren Radley has illustrated twelve self-adhesive stamps representative of the Island’s parishes. St John, St Helier, St Martin, St Ouen, St Saviour and St Peter are featured on the Local Letter stamps; and St Mary, Trinity, St Brelade, St Lawrence, St Clement and Grouville are featured on the UK Priority Letter stamps. Each stamp features the shape of the parish in the background, unique identifying features and a scroll with the parish name in front.
