Canada Post unveiled it’s latest commemorative stamp today celebrating same-sex marriage in Canada.

The stamp, which is one of 10 that is being produced to honour iconic moments in Canada’s history, was unveiled in Toronto on Tuesday.

The maple leaf-shaped stamp features an image of the rainbow flag with the words “Marriage Equality” and the date “2005” emblazoned across it.

That date marks the passage of the Civil Marriage Act, a milestone which made marriage equality the law throughout Canada,
