FDC - Hong Kong - Chinese and Western Wedding Customs

This beautiful FDC with the set of six stamps introduces the wedding culture of Hong Kong from various perspectives, highlighting the harmonious mix of Chinese and Western elements.

In Hong Kong where the East meets the West, weddings are characterized by a blend of traditional Chinese etiquette and Western customs. In this stamp issue, red and gold, popular colours for Chinese celebrations are used in three of the stamps to emphasize the cheerful bustle of Chinese weddings. White and pink, being the symbol of purity, are the main colours of the other three stamps in which the feeling of romance associated with Western weddings permeates.
