But does it have its own stamp?

Iceberg 'size of Luxembourg' a threat to marine life:
A vast iceberg that broke off eastern Antarctic earlier this month could disrupt marine life in the region, scientists have warned.
They say the iceberg, which is 78km long and up to 39km wide, could have consequences for the area's colonies of emperor penguins.
The emblematic birds may be forced to travel further afield to find food.
The iceberg calved from the Mertz Glacier Tongue after it was hit by another huge iceberg, called B9B.
Very cool sequence shots by satellite showing the creation of the Luxembourgy iceberg.
