本局為配合公眾交寄聖誕節及新年郵件需要,特選用雄雞報曉為圖案,籌印新年郵票。按明(五十八)年歲次農曆已酉,年肖屬雞,用以構圖,乃適應民間愛好,並寓雞鳴戒旦,一日之記在於晨之意。

This Directoate has been authorized to issue a set of New Year's Greeting Postage Stamps on November 12, 1968 ro facilitate the prepayment of postage for the Christmans and New Year mails. This set of stamps depicts a cock as the central design. According to chinese lunar calendar, 1969 is the year of Cock. To adopt a cock as the subject on the above-mentioned stamps is for popular appreciation and also signifying that "the cock heralds the dawn," and "the dawn is the most important time of a day."
