About Hong Kong Stamp

In 1999, Hong Kong was formally transferred from British authorities to Chinese authorities. This territory, which evolved from a small, sparsely populated waterway to an international metropolis of millions of people, had become a focal point of the meeting of East and West. Under British control, Hong Kong's postal system flourished, producing stamps simultaneously inspired by Eastern design and by British royalty.The Chinese state retained many of Hong Kong's postal institutions. However, Queen Victoria's visage quickly disappeared from Hong Kong's postal stamps, to be replaced by symbols depicting Chinese unity and great figures from the Revolution. However, certain legal issues regarding stamp nomenclature and precedent confounded Hong Kong scholars and Chinese lawmakers alike.For instance, according to the Universal Postal Union, British Commonwealth territories are allowed more leeway than other nations as far as stamp design is concerned. Since England started the universal stamp system, it still has the right to leave off its ''country name'' from its stamps. Once Hong Kong officially united with China, Hong Kong stamps had to include country name and stamp price designation.The good news for Hong Kong stamp collectors is that the Chinese government, in a show of potency, commemorated its union with Hong Kong by issuing a staggering number of specialized stamps. Look for Chinese/Hong Kong proof sets which disappeared from the market shortly after Hong Kong's annexation.In July of 1997, Hong Kong released a series of 16 denominations to celebrate its upcoming merger with China. Stamps featured important Hong Kong landmarks, including the Hong Kong Railway Museum, Kowloon-Canton Railway, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, and the Museum of Tea Ware.Hong Kong philatelists might also check into the ''creative industries'' series released in 2005. This series paid homage to 11 important Hong Kong industries, including advertising, digital entertainment, and software.
