This is the seventh edition to be launched in the Lunar New Year Generic Sheet series. 2017 is the 'Year of the Dog' which runs from 16th February 2018 to 4th February 2019.
The labels are designed by hat-trick design and feature paper cut- outs both on the bright red background of the sheet and the labels representing the five elements of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth.
The pictorial labels depict Lunar New Year festivities taking place in five UK locations and the remainder show five generic images related to the Lunar New Year. All the labels are complemented by the Fireworks definitive stamp.
The Dog is the 11th of the 12 animals featured in the Lunar New Year. Individuals born under this sign are likely to be honest, friendly, faithful, loyal, smart, straightforward and venerable, as well as having a strong sense of responsibility.
