A special postal stamp was issued by China on Monday to commemorate the ninth annual BRICS summit scheduled to be held early next month in the coastal city of Xiamen in the country’s southeastern Fujian province. The stamp issued by the state-owned China Post bears a logo of the summit as well as the letters “BRICS” and “2017 China”.

It also shows the scenic Gulangyu island, which was included in the UNESCO list last month, as well as the other iconic sites of like Xiamen University. “It shows the features of Xiamen,” Zhang Zhijun, who is associated with the Xiamen branch of China Post.

“With the sea, we would like to imply that the summit is a new starting point for the countries to sail into a bright future,” he said. The summit will be held from September 3 to 5. It is the second BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit to be held in China. The previous one was held in Sanya, Hainan province, in 2011.

Philatelists can buy eight-stamp sheets or individual stamps. The small sheet is made of silk, with a panorama picture of Gulangyu island by a local photographer Zhu Qingfu. The price of one stamp is 1.2 yuan.

China previously has also issued stamps for the G20 Hangzhou Summit and the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. The BRICS forum, an independent international organisation encouraging commercial, political and cultural cooperation between the five-member nations, was formed in 2011.
