15:36, January 04, 2012

A post office staff member shows stamps to mark the Year of Dragon in Suzhou City, east China's Jiangsu Province, Jan. 4, 2012. The stamp for the Year of Dragon, slated for sales throughout the country on Thursday, is the third set of its kind issued by China Post since 1949 and used a make-up that was close to China's first stamp in 1878 during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when emperors still reigned the country.
