The Bula Tiger stamps, in honour of the Chinese New Year, are now available at 58 Post Fiji outlets across the country.

It comes after the launch of the Chinese zodiac stamps at the China Cultural Centre at Ganilau House in Suva yesterday.

Since the partnership in 2016, Post Fiji and the centre have annually produced different zodiac stamps.

 

This, with the Tiger stamps being the seventh release.

The Bula Tiger stamps signify the ongoing bilateral relations and cultural exchange between Fiji and China.

The 42-cent stamp is called the Fiji Post Tiger; the $1.04 stamp is the Fiji Bula Tiger, the $5 stamp is called the Fiji Tourism Tiger and the $10 stamp is the Fiji Rugby Tiger.

 

The fifth tiger, marking the cover design, depicts a tiger wearing a Bula shirt holding a kava bowl.

They were designed by Zhong Feng, a member of the Fellowship of Gemological Association of Britain and a well-regarded creative designer.

 

Co-operation and Design
China Cultural Centre director Han Xiaoyan, who was appointed to position last November said the release was also on the margins of China’s Lantern Festival yesterday.

“The design elements highlight Fiji’s natural scenery, seascape, traditional Fijian sailboats and coconut trees,” Ms Han said.

Post Fiji chief executive officer Anirudha Bansod said: “Post Fiji is overwhelmed with the continuous support from the Chinese Embassy and China Cultural Centre.”

 

Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Fiji political counselor Wang Xuguang said: “In Chinese culture, the tiger symbolises bravery, strength, courage and ambition.

“I believe that combined with Fiji’s unique scenery, plants, traditional costumes and intangible cultural heritage, the Bula Tiger will also bring us peach, unity and resilience.”

Also happening yesterday were the opening of the ‘Tiger Culture Image Design’ and ‘The Great Wall Image: Chen Changfen’s Art Works’ exhibitions.
