The Winter Olympics are also called the White Olympics. At this time, many colorful stamps are published to mark the great Games. The first stamps marking the opening came out on January 25, 1932 in the United States for the 3rd White Olympics. From then on, publishing stamps during the White Olympics became a rule.
During the 4th Winter Olympic Games a group of stamps were published in November 1936. The five rings of Olympics were sewn（缝制）on the front of the sportswear. It was the first time that the rings appeared on the stamps of the White Olympics.
