The Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 in the US state of Illinois by Melvin Jones. A preeminent international service organization, it has clubs in over 200 nations and regions. In celebration of the centennial of its founding, Chunghwa Post is specially releasing a set of two stamps on the theme: “We Serve.”
StampNews.com encourages our readers to appreciate these two bright philatelic items!
This se-tenant issue features the number “100” along with the Lions Clubs logo to convey the idea of the centennial. Meanwhile, a white dove symbolizes peace and flying ribbons suggest celebration. The entire composition is illustrated in a fresh, natural manner so as to convey the spirit of service. The designs follow:
1. NT$5 stamp: It contains images that express the clubs’ care for those who are old and weak, concern for those who are struggling, and support for youth.
2. NT$15 stamp: On the other hand, it features an image of club members encircling the earth, thus expressing how the organization works to focus international efforts and to promote environmental consciousness.
