Brandenburg Birthday
Bears are associated with Berlin and appear in logos and crests for the city. Here, they are partying around the Brandenburg Gate to say "Have a beary Happy Birthday!" wishes on your behalf.

6.25" x 4.5" card is printed on heavy white paper from sustainable forests and comes with choice of orange (shown) or matching white envelopes.

The Brandenburg Gate is a well-known as a symbol of German unity since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. A few more interesting facts appear on the back of the card: The Brandenburg Gate was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace and completed using plans by Carl Gotthard Langhans in 1791.

The classical sandstone work is a masterpiece of this era and is the only one of eighteen previous city portals to survive. The Quadriga, a sculpture representing the Goddess of Victory, by Johan Gottfried Schadow was placed on the Gate in 1793.
