  • Protection of Consumer Rights and Intere...2014-5

    China always attaches great importance to protecting consumers’ rights and interests. China Consumers’ Association, established in 1984, has been holding activities annually to celebrate the “March 15—World Consumer Rights Day” since 1986. In 1987, China Consumers’ Association joined the Consumers International. In 1993, the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Protection of Consumer Rights and Interests was promulgated, which clearly defined the consumers’ rights and interests. Over the past three decades, Chinese consumers’ awareness of legally safeguarding their rights and interests has greatly improved, the rights and interests of Chinese consumers have received effective protection and the “March 15” has become a popular synonym for the protection of the rights and interests of consumers.

  • Scroll of Bathing Horses...

    A horizontal silk scroll, the Scroll of Bathing Horses is a colored painting by Zhao Mengfu of the Tang Dynasty, measuring 28.5cm wide and 154cm long. It is now kept in the Palace Museum. The scroll paints the scene that nine Xiguan (a position of official in charge of horse keeping) have 14 fine horses bathed in the river in the hot summer. The horses are drinking water, or gnawing grass, or tied to a tree with saddle untied, or standing still with the head perking high. Xiguan are in different status: some are bathing the horses, some are riding the horses to the bank, and some are leading the horses to the river. The water is clear and the trees on the bank are luxuriant. This cheerful,comfortable and unfettered scene gives people an elegant and quiet impression.

  • The 50th Anniversary of the Establishmen...

    The stamp set portrays the Qinhuai River in Nanjing and the Seine River in Paris. A branch of the Yangtze River, the Qinhuai flows 110 kilometers through the heart of Nanjing. The river consists of the inner and outer parts, of which the inner Qinhuai stretches for five kilometers and is the most bustling area in the ancient capital of Nanjing. Over more than 1,000 years, the area has been a place concentrating prosperous commerce and profound culture. A major shipping artery in northern France, the Seine extends 776 kilometers in total length and snakes from west to north through the urban areas of Paris. The prosperity of the French capital is largely credited to the river, which makes it an important inland port in France. The Seine is lined with countless historic and cultural relics, many of which have been inscribed onto the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage.

  • Birds of Prey (II)

    Though raptors, also known as birds of prey, occupy the top of the food chain, the wild carnivorous birds are now all under the key protection of the state in China. This stamp set shows four diurnal raptors in Falconiformes, namely Aquila heliaca, Circus cyaneus, Accipiter gentilis, and Falco tinnunculus. Aquila heliaca is about 75cm long and inhabits mountain forests and places on the edges of forests. It usually stays on trees and preys when opportunities emerge. Circus cyaneus is about 50cm long, and lives on open plains, grasslands and farmlands. The greatest natural enemy of other birds and hares in forests, Accipiter gentilis is about 56cm long and can fly rapidly and flexibly in forests to get preys. Falco tinnunculus is only 33cm long. These small raptors can often be seen in open areas. They are famous for their graceful hovering in the air.

  • Jia-Wu Year

    According to Chinese lunar calendar, 2014 is considered Jia-Wu Year or the Year of the Horse. Horse is famous for its robustness and speed, and has played a significant role in production and social life throughout human history. People admire its nobleness and strength, as well as its undying loyalty and persistent spirit, so they bestow on the animal many good symbolic meanings. For instance, such horse-related Chinese idioms as “long ma jing shen” (As Spirited as Dragons and Horses) and “ma dao cheng gong” (Winning Success Immediately upon the Horse’s Arrival) all convey people’s good wishes. The white horse on the stamp features a well-proportioned physique and looks strong and vigorous. Its shape models after the tri-colored porcelain horse of the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The peony patterns on its body symbolize wealth, dignity, and good luck, while the two bats drawn on the saddle mean “getting blessings instantly.” The stamp expresses sincere good wishes for the Year of the Horse.
