The US Postal Service has chosen bright pink peach blossoms as the main feature for the Chinese Lunar New Year theme stamp celebrating the year of the boar.
In China, the peach tree fills the landscape with blooms of bright pink flowers in early February. The flowers define feminine beauty, dominance, and sexuality as important traits of power and strength.
The stamp's design comes from the original artwork by Kam Mark combined with features taken from previous Lunar New Year stamp series by Clarence Lee and Lau Bun. The art director for this stamp was Ethel Kessler.
