As a great project in ancient China, the Great Wall embodies the nation's diligence and wisdom. It is the symbol of Chinese civilization and a treasure of human history and culture.

The Yan, Zhao, Qin and other vassal states in the Spring and Autumn Period (770 B.C.- 476 B.C.) began to construct the Great Wall in the northern farming pastoral zone in the 4th century B.C. It was constructed by dynasties and minority regimes in the central plains heartland.

The Great Wall was included into the World Heritage List for its unique historical, artistic and cultural value in 1987.

The present remains are the Ming Great Wall from the 14th century.

The Nine Figures display the natural and cultural landscape along the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty (1368 A.D.-1644 A.D.), demonstrating the long history of the ruins. Starting from the east at Tiger Mountain of northeast China's Liaoning Province, the Great Wall continues through nine provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities and ends in the west at Jiayuguan Pass of northwest China's Gansu Province.

In accordance, China National Philatelic Corp. will issue a FDC and commemorative postmark.
