W1 – Long Live the Invincible Mao Zedong Thought

In May and August 1966, the enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and the 11th Plenary Session of the Eighth Central Committee were held. The “May 16th Notice” and the “Decision on the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” adopted by these two conferences are the hallmarks of the “Cultural Revolution”.

  The design and distribution of stamps in China were also influenced by the “Cultural Revolution”. On April 19, 1967, the newspapers published a message issued by Xinhua News Agency: “The commemorative stamp of the brilliant glory of Mao Zedong Thought, “Long live the invincible Mao Zedong Thought” was issued in the capital on the 20th. This set of stamps is the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. In order to celebrate the establishment of the Beijing Revolutionary Committee, in order to meet the aspirations of hundreds of millions of people, it was decided to issue it in advance.” This set of stamps is the first set of stamps issued after the cancellation of the Zhihao in China.
The first is a photo of Chairman Mao reviewing the Red Guards on Tiananmen Square. Mao Zedong wore a military uniform, wore a “Red Guard” armband, and took a military cap in one hand, waving his hand to the parade of millions of people. The rest of the pieces are printed with Mao Zedong’s quotations. The entire set of stamps has a strong political color, with a very dazzling red and golden yellow symbolizing the revolution. The six characters of the “Chinese People’s Post” on the stamp are also the hand characters in Mao Zedong’s manuscript, and are placed outside the picture.
Since 1966, China has launched the “Cultural Revolution” campaign, and everything has been hit, and stamps are inevitable. This set of stamps is the first set of stamps issued after the cancellation of the logo. Although the stamp is not printed on the stamp, the number is still printed on the full version of the stamp.
