Year of the Rabbit
Aruba Post released a miniature sheet containing three stamps on January 22 to commemorate the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit which began on that date. Designed by Yohandy Larmonie, the diamond-oriented stamps have denominations of 220, 320, and 520 Aruban cents. The miniature sheet was printed by offset lithography, According to Aruba Post,
The design of this souvenir sheet was inspired by the beautiful colors that adorn the sky on the Chinese New Year, welcoming the Year of the Rabbit.
With its strong symbolism of elegance, compassion and beauty, the rabbit is fast and lucky.
The beautiful colors that adorn the souvenir sheet harmonize the softer nature of the Rabbit. The purple and red center with the adornments of Peony flowers symbolizes the elegance, while the sparkles represent the beautiful aftermath of the fireworks and firecrackers that are used to bring forward this festivity.
The Rabbit sits, gets ready and then jumps right into its good fortune.
May this New Year bring light and Prosperity in each home.Post Aruba
This souvenir sheet is available at all post offices, namely in Oranjestad and San Nicolas and via Post Aruba’s stamp shop www.postaruba.com/stampshop .
