In the pink for the Lunar New Year

Pig out: Two stamps celebrating the New Year feature well-fed pigs, a symbol of prosperity and luck

A set of commemorative stamps to mark the 2007 Lunar New Year or Tet Dinh Hoi (the Year of the Pig), has been issued by the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications.

 

 

 

Depicted on the stamps are images of a family of well-fed pigs gathering happily together in the warmth of spring, symbolising prosperity. The stamps measure 43x32mm and come in denominations of VND800 and VND8,000.

 

The Ministry has also issued first-day covers bearing designs related to the theme of the stamps and two 150x100mm cards featuring an enlarged colour reproduction of the commemorative stamps.

 

The artwork is in the style of traditional Dong Ho paintings and printed on brushed diep paper made from ground seashells.

 

The commemorative stamps are designed to celebrate the most important festival of the year.

 

The Tet Dinh Hoi stamp set is the work of painter Vu Kim Lien, who works for Viet Nam Stamps Company. She is also the author of the Tet Quy Dau stamp set (the Year of the Rooster) issued in 1993, and the Canh Thin stamp set (the Year of the Dragon), to celebrate the new millennium in 2000.

The company has been selecting designs for commemorative Lunar New Year stamps since 1993 from entrants nationwide and the winning designs for 12 years - the traditional cycle of the oriental horoscope.

 

Designing stamps for 15 years, Lien has created more than 200 stamp sets featuring various designs and has received national and international recognition for her work.

 

"Stamps used to welcome the Lunar New Year Festival should show enthusiasm and the freshness of the new spring, as well as traditional beauty," said Lien.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
