About Year of the Tiger

With origins that can be traced back over 4,000 years, Chinese New Year, also known as Chinese Spring Festival, is the oldest and most celebrated event in the Chinese calendar. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger and begins on 1 February 2022 at the start of the Spring Festival and lasts until 21 January 2023. To celebrate the Chinese New Year our stamps depict the tiger and have been created by artist Chrissy Lau. In China, colours are used symbolically within ceremonies, festivals, and rituals, and Chrissy has chosen them to represent meaning on the stamps. The use of red symbolises good fortune and joy, whilst the gold detailing represents wealth, prosperity and happiness.
