C4 – Commemorating Inauguration of the People’s Republic of China

On October 1, 1949, the People’s Republic of China was proclaimed, marking the basic end of China’s new democratic revolution. A new era of new socialism has begun. Since then, the people of all ethnic groups in China have begun to be their own masters under the leadership of the Communist Party of China and have worked hard to build a prosperous and strong socialist country. The victory of the Chinese people, which accounts for nearly a quarter of humanity, has greatly inspired the struggle of the people of all countries in the world for national independence and social progress.

To commemorate this great historical event, since the liberation of Peiping in 1949, it has actively begun preparations for the first plenary session of the CPPCC and the establishment of two sets of commemorative stamps by the People’s Republic of China. However, the draft was revised several times, such as the change of the ticket type from horizontal to vertical; the “China People’s Post” was changed to “Chinese People’s Post”; due to the adjustment of postage, the stamps were selected, designed and printed. It was not until the issuance of the system that it was nearly a year, and it was only after the founding of the party in 1950 that it was published. A full set of 4 stamps with the same pattern. The solemn five-star red flag appeared on Chinese stamps for the first time. Chairman Mao Zedong, the magnificent Tiananmen Square and the tanks and planes of the People’s Liberation Army, which were reviewed, all vividly recorded this great historical moment of the founding ceremony of the New China. A package of stickers for the Northeast was also issued and was reprinted on January 10, 1955.

Collection suggestion

This set of stamps contains four stamps with the same pattern. The stamps are marked with a bright five-star red flag. Mao Zedong’s side image is the main body. Below Mao Zedong’s head is the Tiananmen’s tower. Below Tiananmen Square, there are tanks and queues. Flying over, the image recorded the important moment when Mao Zedong reviewed the planes and tanks during the founding ceremony of our country, and the stamps of the stamps were vertical. The vertical ticket was more sudden. The meaning of the Chinese people standing up from here, the five-star red flag The first time it appeared on Chinese stamps, it was unprecedented. This stamp is also known as one of the best 30th anniversary stamps.

Because the stamps are far away from the present and have a long history, they have witnessed the ups and downs of China for more than 60 years, and the circulation was relatively small at that time. After the changes of the times, it is now more precious.
