    The “Sinosphere,” or “East Asian cultural sphere,” refers to a group of countries and regions in East Asia that were historically influenced by the Chinese culture.

    The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar and is so named because it falls right in the middle of the three autumn months.

    The festival originated in the early Tang Dynasty (618 A.D.— 907 A.D.), prevailed in the Song Dynasty (960 A.D.—1279 A.D.), and has become one of the main Chinese festivals during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, along with the Spring Festival.

    Influenced by Chinese culture, the Mid-Autumn Festival is also a traditional festival in in East and Southeast Asia, especially for local Chinese people.

    During this festival, the full moon symbolizes the reunion of family members. People usually show their longing for their hometowns and relatives, and pray for a bumper harvest and happiness.

    Since ancient times, there have been many colorful and prolonged Mid-Autumn Festival customs, such as offering sacrifices to the moon, admiring the glorious full moon, eating moon cakes, enjoying osmanthus flowers and drinking wine fermented with osmanthus flowers.

    In May 2006, the Mid-Autumn Festival was included in UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage List. In 2008, it has been listed as a national public holiday.

    The Twenty-Four Solar Terms are the knowledge hierarchy and social practice of astronomical phenomena, phenology, seasons and natural changes for Chinese people. The ancient Chinese people divided the track of the annual movement of the sun into 24 equal parts, each of which was a solar term. All of them were collectively referred to as the twenty-four solar terms.

    The twenty-four solar terms are not only an important vehicle of Chinese cultural identity, but also a vivid testimony to human cultural diversity.

    The Limit of Heat is the 14th solar term. Warm days and cool nights are conducive to the growth of crops in this time. Also, people in some areas have begun to harvest. The stamp features farmers taking care of their crops.

    White Dew is the 15th solar term. Due to the maximum temperature difference between day and night, it is advisable to exercise sufficiently to keep fit. The stamp displays some elderly persons and children boxing and keeping fit.

    The Autumnal Equinox is the 16th solar term. This is when farming activities reach their peak in autumn. At this time, persimmons are ripe in some areas. The stamp depicts an old man leading children to collect persimmons, signifying that everything is safe and sound.

    Cold Dew is the 17th solar term. Most areas in China have entered autumn. In people’s daily lives, it is common to prepare thick clothes. The stamp displays a tailor custom-making clothes for his customers.

    Frost's Descent is the 18th solar term. Maples, yellow oak and other trees begin to turn reddish yellow. Because their color looks like fire, they are very spectacular, inviting people to admire their beauty. In the stamp, visitors are enjoying the red autumn leaves, unwilling to leave.

It has the charm of the Bai Causeway of the West Lake. In the picture, a master sits in the atrium and enjoys the view, with a servant standing beside him.

    The Autumn Scenery displays leaves of an old tree turning red and purple after frost. A courtyard is fringed with trees and stones, and a bridge leads to serenity.  In the courtyard, the windows are bright and clean. An old man sits alone and restores his spirit. There is a servant fetching water and cooking tea for him.

    After the Opium War in 1840, a large number of people with lofty ideals, represented by Lin Zexu and Guan Tianpei, fought against foreign aggression and oppression, maintained national sovereignty and interests, and became worthy national heroes.

    Guan Tianpei (1781-1841), born in Huaian City, east China's Jiangsu Province, was a famous patriotic general in the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912). During his tenure as admiral in the Qing Dynasty in Guangdong, Guan gave full support to Lin Zexu's destruction of opium at Humen Beach. After the outbreak of the Opium War, the British army invaded the fort of Humen. Guan led the guards to resist resolutely, and was finally martyred.

    Lin Zexu (1785-1850), born in Fuzhou City, south China's Fujian Province, was a great patriot of modern China. He banned opium in Guangdong Province in 1839 and burnt 20,000 boxes of collected opium, about 1.185 million kilograms, in Humen beach. Lin compiled some foreign books and materials, making Chinese people begin to break the shackles of the concept of Huayi, and learn from the West.

    Feng Zicai (1818-1903), born in Shawei Village, south China's Guangdong Province (now located in Guangxi Province), was a patriotic general in the late Qing Dynasty. During the Sino-French War of 1883-1885, 70-year-old Feng was named military assistant outside Shanhaiguan Pass. He routed the French army, won the war of Zhen Nanguan, and captured Wenyuan, Lang Son and other key towns.

    Liu Yongfu (1837-1917), born in Qinzhou City, south China's Guangdong Province (now located in Guangxi Province), was a patriotic general in the late Qing Dynasty. Liu participated in the Sino-French War with his black flag troops in 1883, and repeatedly defeated the French army. During the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, he was ordered to fight the Japanese army in Taiwan. After Taiwan fell, Liu, as an anti-Japanese leader, continued to lead local masses to resist Japan.

    Deng Shichang (1849-1894), born in Panyu District, south China's Guangdong Province, was a patriotic general in the late Qing Dynasty. He was commander of the North Atlantic Fleet during the First Sino-Japanese War. Deng fought bravely against the Japanese army in the battle of the Yellow Sea, and eventually sacrificed his own life for the cause.

    The set of stamps was created using traditional Chinese painting techniques. The first stamp depicts Guan Tianpei standing on the top of a battery, holding a sword, and commanding the battle of Humen. The second shows the historical scene of Lin Zexu's destruction of opium at Humen Beach and the third one shows Feng Zicai jumping from the wall of Zhennanguan, and rushing against the French army. The fourth displays Liu Yongfu's foray into Lintao County and defeating the French army, while in the fifth stamp, Deng Shichang holds a telescope in hand, calmly commanding  the  soldiers of the North Atlantic Fleet.

    This set of stamps was designed by the young painter Meng Fancong and was printed by the Beijing Stamp Printing House using a heliographic printing process.
