    A "happy" stamp, indeed. The jester-like character on the right side comes close to fulfilling the quest for a horse riding a bicycle! @anglobob may remember that quest.

    The "jester-like" character is the "Münchner Kindl".
    She derives from the (small) coat of arms of München (Munic).
    Here on a stamp from a set of 6,issued April 2nd,1922:
    A 00.jpg
    It shows a monk (in German: Mönch <=> München) holding a book
    in his right hand.It is an "oath-book" on what he is swearing.(Although
    some historians claim,it is not an oath-book (something like the constitution),but a religious book,likely the New Testament.But as
    the coat of arms is more than 700 years old,nobody really knows.
    Anyway,about 150 years ago,an artist converted the monk into a
    little boy (his own son),but soon it became a little girl,now with
    a Maßkrug (litre tankard) in the right hand.
    The Münchner Kindl now is the popular symbol for Munic.
