60th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China FDC from HONGKONG

FDC Name:60th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China.
Issue Date:1st OCT'2009
Details:Founded on 1 October 1949, the People's Republic of China celebrates her 60th anniversary this year. Over the past 60 years, China has amazed the world with her remarkable success in development. While looking back with pride at our numerous accomplishments, all Chinese people strive for an even brighter tomorrow.
To mark this memorable moment, Hongkong Post issues a set of commemorative stamps. The set of six stamps is designed based on the winning entry of the Stamp Design Competition for the 60th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China jointly organised by the Home Affairs Bureau, Radio Television Hong Kong, the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education and the Commission on Youth.
  • Victoria Harbour and Tiananmen Square depicted on two interlocking cogwheels ($1.40), and the
  • five-star national flag flying by the side of the "Forever Blooming Bauhinia" ($1.80), symbolize the intimate and inseparable bond between Hong Kong and our Motherland.
  • The Bird's Nest ($2.40) reminds us of the country's first hosting of the Olympic Games
  • while the successful launch of China's manned spacecraft Shenzhou-7 ($2.50) marks her rapid technological advancement and development.
  • The Temple of Heaven against the backdrop of an illuminated globe ($3) and
  • a golden dragon soaring above the Great Wall ($5) signify the nation's rising economic and international status.
The six stamps also fit into a perfect ring on the mini sheet with the accompanying number "6", bringing out the theme of the 60th anniversary.
Remark:Nice FDC with odd shape stamps set.The design of stamps are excellent. The souvenir sheet was great but my friend has sent the FDC with stamps only.
