Feb. 4, 2013 at 4:49 PM

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- On what would have been her 100th birthday, the Rosa Parks commemorative stamp went on sale Monday honoring the civil rights icon, the U.S. Postal Service said.

The stamp is one of several new "forever stamps" being issued by the postal service commemorating the civil rights movement. A stamp commemorating the Emancipation Proclamation was introduced Jan. 1.

The Parks stamp was officially revealed during the NAACP Image Awards last week.
