Zhong Hua Men Archway Postage Stamp 2013
In this series, Canada Post highlights 8 gates of Chinatown across the country to highlighted the most important angle for the gate in their community, giving each stamp a truly local feel.  The gate honours Chinese Canadian settlers, particularly those who laboured on the transcontinental railway.  8 illustrators across the country took to their communities to create watercolour paintings of the gates. Stamp designer Hélène L’Heureux of Interaction/design then used these renderings to create unique stamps that work together as a set.   Standing at Gerrard East and Hamilton Streets in Toronto’s Chinatown East, Zhong Hua Men Archway was built, thanks to many Canadian and Chinese partners.
