She’s already left her stamp on the world.

Greta Thunberg, the 18-year-old activist who inspired climate action protests across the world, will appear on a stamp in her home country of Sweden.

The stamp shows Thunberg in her trademark yellow raincoat while standing on a cliff. Appearing alongside the teenage trailblazer is a flock of birds.

Sweden’s postal service, PostNord, will sell the stamps for about $1.40, the Associated Press reported. They are part of series of environment-focused stamps illustrated by Swedish artist Henning Trollback.

Thunberg’s Fridays for Future movement didn’t design the stamp, simply approving the illustration, according to Reuters.

Thunberg rose to worldwide prominence in August 2018, when she began skipping school and staging one-person protests in front of Sweden’s parliament demanding the government take action to combat climate change.

She took a gap year to spread her message around the world, returning to school in August 2020.
