A stamp commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative was released on Sept 7 at the China National Post and Postage Stamp Museum in Beijing.
It features an image of the large-scale art installation Golden Bridge on Silk Road, which was created by artist Shu Yong in 2015 to express the yearning to bridge different cultures and create a global community with shared interests.
Shu says that the stamp also features an array of flowers, especially national flowers, from countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, as an expression of cultural diversity and prosperity.
Some 80 experts and representatives from philatelic organizations, including the All-China Philatelic Federation and China Philately, stamp designers, artists and collectors attended the ceremony.
During the accompanying seminar, experts and scholars discussed issues including the use of stamps to showcase China's technological development and to facilitate international cultural exchange.
