Postage Prepaid Postcard Series No. 21 - “China Post – Hongkong Post – Macao Post Joint Issue on Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge” (Air Mail) will be issued on 24 March 2010 to commemorate the 100th day since commencement of the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge on 15 December 2009.
The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is an unprecedented important strategic road corridor which links up Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao in the Pearl River Delta, China. It provides opportunities for significant social and economic development in these areas for the coming decades and is targeted to open in 2015/2016. This is the first time that the three Posts jointly issue a Postage Prepaid Postcard.
On the Postcard, Bauhinia (the city flower of Hong Kong), Bougainvillea (the city flower of Zhuhai) and Lotus (the city flower of Macau) are depicted to represent the three cities. The rainbow-like contours echo the cables of the Bridge and symbolise a bright future for the development and collaboration across the three cities.
