Hong Kong : 2012 London Olympic Stamps

 Four stamps showcase a number of sports in which the Hong Kong Olympic team has participated, including windsurfing and rowing ($1.40), badminton and archery ($2.40), table tennis and cycling ($3), and swimming and athletics ($5). Embedded in the design of each stamp is a digit. All four taken together,  "2 - 0 - 1 - 2". The stamps combine to form a complete sphere, with colourful cylinders that resemble fireworks, suggesting the excitement and vitality of the Games. Echoing the theme of the London Olympics, three-dimensional shapes are also used on the right of the souvenir sheet to portray the Olympic events as well as various famous landmarks of London. Radiating lines in the background add to the dynamics of the whole design.
Stamp products include mint stamps, stamp sheets, souvenir sheet and presentation pack. Serviced first day covers.
