Maternal love is the greatest human affection. A mother gives birth to a child and gives the child her true, unselfish and eternal love. "A thread is in my fond mother's hand moving, for her son to wear the clothes ere leaving". Those are verses written by Meng Jiao, a poet of Tang Dynasty, in his "A Traveler's Song", which utters the mother's solicitude for her son traveling afar. Maternal love is also rewarded by people in various forms. Birthday is called "Hard Day of Mother" among the people, meaning the mother suffers pains when giving birth to a child. Nowadays, a growing number of people choose holidays or their mothers' birthdays to express their good wishes or gratitude to their mothers with flowers and gifts. The stamp is the very first one issued by China Post with the golden overlay on. When the overlay is scratched off, good blessings for mothers will show up. The overlays include four blessings: I Love You, Mom; Wish You Happy Forever, Mom; Mom Is the Best in the World; Thank You, Mom, for Your Love and Care Given from My Childhood.

China National Philatelic Corporation will issue a FDC and a commemorative cancellation respectively.
