The “Beautiful Netherlands” 2016 stamp sheet devoted to the town of Urk is based on the layout and perforation which has been used for the “Beautiful Netherlands” series since 2005. The five identical stamps with a denomination of 1 for domestic destinations feature typical properties and buildings found in the town of Urk, including the UK1 buoy (pictured), the lighthouse (pictured) and the UK 244 prawn fishing boat (pictured), with the sea below. Pictured at the bottom is an image of a plaice: this image is spread across the stamp and the back of the sheet. The top and bottom parts of the stamp are linked together by a traditional fishing net in a contemporary bright colour. The background of the stamp sheet also contains pictures of some of Urk’s landmark sights, including a double bollard, fishing nets hung out to dry, the Urk village flag (showing a haddock in the centre), a mooring post, several homes designed in the typical Zuiderzee architectural style, the view over the harbour and a crane on the local shipyard. The strip of sea pictured on the stamps has been extended horizontally across the sheet like a tile panel. In the water at the bottom, we see both the plaice shown the bottom stamp and other fish species: from left to right, three mullets, a cod and a sole.
