Latvia 2 euro 2019 year. Rising Sun.

The topic is a reference to Ansis Cīrulis (Ansis Cirulis), the artist who first began to use the symbol of the Sun in the heraldry of Latvian organizations, as a symbol of the national upsurge in 1915. Ansis Tsirulis, in 1915 depicted him on the flag and insignia of the 1st Daugavgrivsky battalion of the Latvian Riflemen.

Later, in 1917, Cirulis proposed the sun as part of the coat of arms and symbol of free Latvia. Later this motive became one of the main elements of the Latvian coat of arms.

Also, the authorship of Ansis Cirulis belonged to the first postage stamp of independent Latvia, published in 1918. The stamp shows three ears against the backdrop of the rising sun, three stars symbolizing three provinces: Kurzeme, Vidzeme and Latgale.

In 1919 A. Cirulis created banknotes of the Latvian Soviet Republic in denominations of five, three and one ruble.

Reverse: The map of Europe is located on the right side. The background of the map shows six vertical lines. There are 12 stars at the ends of these lines. To the left of the card is a numerical denomination. On the map itself is a horizontal inscription “EURO”.

Obverse: symbol of the Rising Sun.
