New Year’s Greeting(Year of Dragon) FDC from TAIWAN

FDC Name:New Year’s Greeting
Issue date:1st DEC'2011
To welcome the Chinese New Year of the Dragon, Chunghwa Post has issued a set of two New Year’s Greeting Postage Stamps (Issue of 2011) and a souvenir sheet featuring the upcoming year’s animal sign. The two stamps have denominations of NT$3.50 and NT$13.00, and the souvenir sheet has a denomination of NT$12.00. 
Continuing the pop modern art and traditional Chinese ink-wash styles of the 2010 issue, the vignette of each of the stamps features a dragon or dragons colored with regal purple and nature’s green against an orange background with random yellow splatters. The bright color scheme brings a joyous atmosphere to the Year of the Dragon. The designs follow:

1. NT$3.50 Stamp: Staring into each other’s eyes, this pair of dragons represents the idea of “belonging to each other” and symbolizes that “all one’s wishes will come true.”

2. NT$13.00 Stamp: Holding its head up high and ready to spring into action, the image of this dragon represents “pride” and symbolizes “joy and good health.”

3. NT$12.00 Souvenir Sheet: The image of a proud dragon soaring in the sky conveys the idea of “promotion” and “success.”

This set of stamps features the work of Chen Peiyi, who won a competition to design the stamps. They are printed by China Color Printing Co., Ltd. in color offset.
Remark: Thanks ShChin Chen for sending two FDC on the issue date by registered post.It is a point to be note that, there is two different size for stamps & miniature sheet FDC.Where as India Post never do this so the bigger Miniature sheet  in the most of the case never fit into the FDC.
I have analyzed the stamps issued by India Post in the year-2011 to till date & found that more than 50 % of the stamps issued were on personalities.
