Today, all of America's fifty states have both an official state bird and state flower. Several states have adopted the same symbols. The cardinal, for example, has been chosen as the official bird by seven states and the violet is the official flower of four states. These cards were designed by a father-son team, Arthur and Alan Singer of Jericho, New York. The father, Arthur, created the bird designs, and Alan contributed the flower designs. These cards are all postmarked on the First Day of Issue of the stamps, April 14, 1982, in Washington, D.C.
