The three specially designed gold and red Dragon stamps

The set includes three specially designed gold and red Dragon stamps, and a sheet of 12 zodiac stamps. These designs symbolize the Dragon’s good fortune and power. 

The stamps featuring the Lucky Dragon will cost AUD1.20 (US$0.78). Other products such as gift boxes, bags and zodiac posters were also released with 12 unique designs corresponding to zodiac animals.

The Dragon is the fifth animal in the Chinese Zodiac and people born in the Year of the Dragon are believed to be intelligent, powerful, confident, charismatic and naturally gifted.

Earlier, on January 8, the Ministry of Information and Communications released a new stamp collection to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year – the Year of the Dragon

The two-piece set measures 37x37 mm and costs VND4,000 (US$0.16).

The first stamp depicts a golden dragon soaring into the sky which is associated with the tale of Hanoi’s Imperial Citadel of Thang Long (Rising Dragon), and the second bears an image of Ha Long Bay which tells the legendary story of dragons descending from the heaven to help Vietnamese people fight foreign invaders and protect their homeland.

In its last session of 2023 on December 26, the UN General Assembly recognized for the first time the Lunar New Year as an annual holiday at the body. This recognition represents international acknowledgment of traditional Asian culture, including that of Viet Nam.

The Tet festival is the largest and most important traditional festival of the Vietnamese people. This year, workers will have seven days off work starting from February 8 to enjoy Tet celebrations./.
