Year of the Ox special stamps were officially launched at the National Museum of China on Tuesday to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year.
The specially designed Chinese zodiac year stamps featuring the ox can be purchased at post offices and online platforms starting Tuesday. China Post’s website, its official mobile app and e-store on WeChat are all selling the stamps.
The first stamp is called "strive to be strong", depicting the image of a majestic and indomitable bull. With its eyes glaring and hooves up in the air, the bull symbolizes the Chinese people’s unswerving resolve to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
The second implies "good fortune in the Year of the Ox", conveying the best wishes of family prosperity, harmony and reunion to people across the country, through the love between the mother and her calf.
