Cpost International wants hereby to introduce its traditional Chinese New Year series.
2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the Fire Rooster, the tenth Animal in the Chinese Zodiac. The Rooster, a male chicken is also known as a Cock or Cockerel.
The series consists of 3 stamps and a souvenir sheet. The designer is Marcel van Duijneveldt.

Persons born in the years of the Roosters spend much of their time perfecting their images. They’re terrific social organizers and excellent leaders. The Rooster symbolizes such character traits as confidence, pompousness and motivation. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rooster are loyal, trustworthy individuals who are blunt when it comes to offering their opinions. They are also extremely sociable, proud, organized and neat.
Cpost International wants hereby to congratulate the Chinese community and extend our best wishes for perfect health and lasting prosperity.
