Hongkong Post will issue a set of special stamps on the theme of "Rare and Precious Plants in Hong Kong," together with associated philatelic products on August 17, it said here on Wednesday.

The issue is to raise public awareness about conservation of Hong Kong's rare and precious plants as well as their natural habitats, Hongkong Post said.

This set of four stamps depicts the characteristics and forms of four rare and precious plants found in Hong Kong, namely Ilex graciliflora, Bulbophyllum bicolor, Begonia hongkongensis and Illicium angustisepalum, according to Hongkong Post.

To echo the theme, the stamps and souvenir sheet are printed with paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and distinguished by the use of raw materials and production processes that comply with stringent standards, Hongkong Post said.
