Canada Post to issue stamps to mark Chinese Year of Monkey

加拿大邮政公布猴年主题邮票

Canada Post is set to release a collection of stamps featuring monkey to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb 8 this year, the national carrier announced Wednesday.

周三,国有航空公司宣布,加拿大邮政公布发行猴年主题邮票来庆祝中国农历春节(2月8日)的到来。

The stamps, the eighth issue in the second 12-year Lunar New Year series which started in 1997, are part of a popular commemorative stamp program Canada Post has been running for the past two decades.

这是加拿大邮政自1997年以来第二轮农历十二生肖的第八款农历新年邮票,这个活动是一个流行的纪念邮票计划的一部分,活动已经持续了二十年。

The one for domestic rate will be released on Jan 11 and another for international rate on Feb 1. Canada Post said all stamps and related products can be pre-ordered on its website.

国内版邮票将于1月11日发行,国际版邮票将于2月1日发行。加拿大邮政表示,所有邮票和相关产品都可以在网上预订。

Domestic and international stamps were inspired by the legend of the Monkey King, also known as Sun Wukong in Chinese language, one of the main characters in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Also transformed into a famous Chinese opera, the story tells of how the sovereign accompanied the monk Xuanzang on a journey to India to retrieve sacred Buddhist texts known as sutras.

国内和国际邮票的灵感来自美猴王的传说,汉语中也被称为孙悟空,是中国古典小说西游记的主要人物之一。美猴王也来自于一个著名的中国歌剧,故事讲述君主伴随玄奘法师踏上印度之旅神圣取佛经的历程。

Designed by Albert Ng and Linna Xu from Toronto, the domestic stamp depicts a golden figure that is vibrant and alive against a rich red background that provides a stark and striking contrast, while the international-rate stamp features a stylized Monkey King mask with red and gold accents. The text of "Monkey" on the stamps is in Chinese, English and French.

该邮票由来自于多伦多的Albert Ng 和徐琳娜设计,国内邮票版本中,邮票以红色为底色,描绘了手持金箍棒的生机勃勃美猴王形象;而国际邮票版本上呈现的是以传统金色和红色为底色的一个典型的美猴王面具。“猴”字有中文,英文和法语三种语言形式。

Those born in the Year of the Monkey are said to possess brilliance, flexibility and inventiveness, along with an excellent memory and strong will to succeed. They can, however, be easily frustrated by delays, tend to look down on others and have a fast-flaring temper. Canadians born to this lunar year include singer Celine Dion, actress Kim Cattrall and legendary pianist Glenn Gould.

猴年出生的人被认为赋有才华,聪明伶俐,创造性突出,记忆力非凡,成功欲强烈。但是他们会很容易急性子,小瞧别人,而且脾气暴躁。出生于猴年的加拿大籍明星有歌手Celine Dion,演员Kim Cattrall,传奇钢琴家Glenn Gould。

Canada Post’s commemorative stamp program is more than 160 years old. It began with Sir Sanford Flemming who designed in 1851 the Three-Penny Beaver stamp.

加拿大邮政纪念性邮票活动已有160余年的历史。这个活动始于1851年由Sanford Flemming 先生创作的三只海狸邮票。

Over the years, the stamps have become Canada Post’s unique way of ringing in the new year and to celebrate the diverse cultures within the community. Every year the launch attracts many long-time stamp collectors.

这些年来,这些邮票成为加拿大邮政迎为庆祝丰富多样的社会文化来接新的一年的独特方式,每年推出吸引了许多资深的邮票收藏家。

通过上面的跨考网的专家精心的为大家准备的关于2017考研英语阅读材料:加拿大邮政公布猴年主题邮票的一些资料,我们知道这也是加拿大与中国友好往来的一种表现形式。
