HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The main design celebrates the (2024) Year of the Dragon through its playful depiction of the beloved Chinese Zodiac animal. Gracefully snaking across the sky, the Dragon extends its claws and reaches for two auspicious motifs: a branch covered in plum blossoms, the Chinese New Year flower symbolizing resilience, vitality and courage; and a celebratory lantern, which is decorated with the Chinese character for Dragon. 


Year of the Dragon:

The sole mythical creature in the Chinese Zodiac, the indomitable Dragon is the symbol of great power and good fortune, of success and strength. People born in the Year of the Dragon are natural leaders known for their tenacity and courage, and under the auspicious influence of the Wood Dragon, 2024 brings the promise of progress, positivity and prosperity.

Those born between February 10, 2024 and January 28, 2025 will fall into the Year of the Dragon, as will those born in 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940 and 1928.
