Elizabeth of Glamis
The rose, Elizabeth of Glamis (pronounced "glahmz", one of our British oddities) was named for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 1964. It was the first rose to be given copyright protection in the UK.
The stamp was issued in 1976 as one of a set of four commemorating the centenary of the National Rose Society, and was one of the very early PHQ (Postal HQ) stamps cards published.
