Chinese culture views the colour red as especially positive with many auspicious symbolic resonances in Chinese mythology, in particular when red envelopes are exchanged during times of celebration such as the new-year. Stamp Designer Stanley Chow has found inspiration through these red envelopes and has also adopted the use of gold throughout the stamps to provide an authentic design.
