Year of the Tiger

The Year of the Tiger begins February 1, 2022 and ends on January 21, 2023. Utilizing orange as the predominant color—characteristic of the markings of Bengal tigers and said to be one of the lucky colors for individuals born during the Year of the Tiger—the tiger mask in the stamp design incorporates elements with symbolic meaning. Several of the patterns and details were created with the style of Asian textiles in mind as well as green flowers that represent the arrival of spring, which Lunar New Year also signals in Chinese culture. The purple motif atop the tiger’s head references the celestial themes of the Chinese zodiac. The tiger is the third of the 12 zodiac animal signs associated with the Chinese lunar calendar. Many ancient fables and legends explain the origin of the zodiac signs. © 2022 United States Postal Service®. All Rights Reserved. Used with Permission
