Personal Greeting Stamps – The Language of Flowers FDC from TAIWAN

FDC Name:Personal Greeting Stamps – The Language of Flowers
Issue Date:28th SEP'2012
To provide more custom design options, Chunghwa Post has issued a second set of ten stamps featuring the “language of flowers” on September 28, 2012. This series is a follow-up to the “Personal Greeting Stamps – Travel in Taiwan,” issued on September 27, 2011. The different denominations are distinguished by different background colors. The designs follow:

1. Cotton rose: daintiness. Comely and graceful, cotton roses always manage to stand out in a sea of flowers. They are often used to describe ladies of extraordinary beauty.

2. Bird-of-Paradise: passion. It is known for its distinguished, moon-gazing crane shape. The colors are a bright, flaming red. Bird-of-paradise also represents freedom, fulfillment and bliss.

3. Clary sage: respect. Clary sage comes in pink and bluish purple. It represents longevity and defense against bad fortunes.

4. Dancing lady orchid: gentleness. Dancing lady orchid inspires an impression of dancing butterflies. Small, dainty yellow blossoms hang around the stalks like tiny bells.

5. Zinnia: everlastingness. Zinnia is known for its long flowering period. When in full bloom, the flowers seem to tower one another. It therefore also represents elevation in status.

6. Tagetes erecta: health. The petals are full and bright, with a relatively long flowering period. As a flower species, Tagetes erecta is popular for its vitality.

7. Chinese hibiscus: grace. The blossoms are flamboyant and pleasing to the eye. Chinese hibiscus also represents new love.

8. Fragrant olive: humility. The blossoms are exquisite and sweet with fragrance. Its Chinese moniker, “Gui,” is also homonymous with the Chinese word, “value.” The flower therefore is seen as a symbol of status and prosperity.

9. Flowering crab apple: warmth. The flower blooms in spring, and brings with it the welcoming warmth of the season. Known for its magic spell, crab apple is also lovingly called, “understand me.”

10. Hydrangea: hope. Hydrangea flowers thrive in the warmth of spring. They are the vanguard of a new season.

The stamps are designed by Up Creative Design & Advertising Corporation and printed in color offset by China Color Printing Co., Ltd.
