Hongkong Post will issue of a set of special stamps to mark the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge. This includes a special set of four stamps and a stamp sheetlet.
The design highlights the Chinese and English names of the HZMB: the letter "H" (for Hong Kong) and the Chinese character for "Kong" on the HK$2 stamp, the letter "Z" (for Zhuhai) and the Chinese character for "Zhu" on the HK$3.70 stamp, the letter "M" (for Macau) and the first character of the Chinese name of Macau on the HK$4.90 stamp, and the letter "B" (for "Bridge") and the Chinese character for "bridge" on the HK$5 stamp, Hong Kong Post said.
The English letters and Chinese characters are interwoven with a grid-like pattern in the background to form an intricate network. The grid and drawings symbolize the highway network that promotes the integration of the cities within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area.
To mark the milestone, China Post, Hongkong Post and the Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau will jointly issue a souvenir pack on the same day.
The Official First Day Covers at HK$1.30 each will go on sale at all post offices from tomorrow.
