Hong Kong Heartwarming FDCs

Hong Kong FDCs
Name: Heartwarming
Date of Issue: 25 June 2009

Hongkong Post releases the fourth issue of the Heartwarming Stamps series focusing on the familiar themes of "Love and Care" and "Celebrations" to convey affection and heartfelt wishes.

The design of the new set takes after the third issue released in 2007. Interesting cultural similarities and differences are highlighted with felt appliqué in cheerful colours. The "Celebrations" stamps compare the exciting festivity of the Chinese lion dance with fun-filled parties in Western style. The blossoming flowers and fluttering butterflies in the "Love and Care" stamps tell us that there is warmth and romance in the air.

The Heartwarming Stamps bear a "Local Mail Postage" or "Air Mail Postage" marking instead of value indicators. The "Local Mail Postage" stamps are valid on local mail items weighing not more than 30 grams (currently valued at $1.40) and the "Air Mail Postage" stamps can be used to send airmail items weighing 20 grams or less worldwide (currently valued at $3).

The "Celebrations" and "Love and Care" Heartwarming Stamps add tidings of joy and cheer to precious moments such as birthdays, achievements, anniversaries, weddings and births.
