Australia Releases Chinese Flavor Postage Stamp

Australia Post released a cheeky kookaburra named Peng Peng on a local stamp on Tuesday to coincide with the Shanghai World Expo 2010, which opened on May 1.

Peng Peng, a name which carries connotations of "friendship" in Mandarin, is Australia's mascot for the expo and makes up one of a set of stamps promoting the nation's participation at the international event.

The fun-loving bird's other half of the stamp set features an image of the red ochre Australian pavilion, which is hosting a range of cultural and business programs relating to the expo's theme, 'Better City, Better Life'.
