Links with China – Butterflies

In recent times, China and Jersey have shared many exchanges between schoolchildren, businessmen and women as well as government representatives and dignitaries. The purposes of the visits are wide-reaching and can involve exploring each other’s cultures and ways of life. The third instalment in the series looking at Jersey’s natural links with China features a selection of butterflies that have been recorded in both locations, each representing two ends of the same eco-zone, the Palearctic. Colourful and captivating, butterflies often enrich the lives of onlookers and bring a feeling of peace. An abundance of different species is a good indication of the health of the countryside they are visiting.

Six stamps, a Souvenir Miniature Sheet and a Souvenir Sheetlet feature six of butterflies which can be found in both Jersey and China.
