The stamps were designed by artist Nguyen Quang Vinh and measure 37x37 mm, while the block is 150x100 mm. They cost 4,000 VND, 15,000 VND and 38,000 VND respectively.

The block background shows a Tiger family happily gathering together to welcome spring in a forest of plum, peach, and apricot flowers.

The stamp shows powerful tigers depicted in the style of Hang Trong folk paintings, bringing a message of health, luck and peace to every home.

For many Asian countries, the tiger is a symbol of strength and authority, coming third among the 12 zodiac animals.

The tiger is also known as the ‘Lord of the Forest’ as well as a sacred animal closely associated with the history and culture of the Vietnamese people.

The stamp is available on the public postal network until June 30, 2023.
