Chinese Signs of the Zodiac - Rooster

Also this year the Philately is continuing the artistically designed series of Chinese zodiac signs. For the “Year of the Rooster 2017” (value CHF 2.00), it is issuing a new self-adhesive special stamp depicting a filigree silhouette that was created using the most up to date laser technology. The sheet of four stamps which is in red – the Chinese symbol for good luck – is moreover cut in the shape of a rooster. All of the imprints were applied in high-quality gold foil. The fascination of Chinese culture lies in its diversity, one aspect of which is astrology with its twelve zodiac signs. The Chinese year 2017 lasts from 28 January 2017 to 15 February 2018 and stands under the rule of the rooster. This zodiac sign is a synonym for the born observer. As astrologists know, in the Year of the Rooster it is easier for a person to sharpen his sixth sense, to observe and to think before acting. According to the Chinese horoscope, those born in the Year of the Rooster have the benefit of two opposing character traits: diligent and down-to-earth during the day when work needs to be done, attractive and extrovert in the evening – at least that’s what the experts say.
