To commemorate Indonesia 2012 International Stamp Exhibition, New Zealand Post issued the exhibition miniature sheet incorporating three stamps from the ‘2012 New Zealand Native Trees’ stamp issue. The stamps are set against a picturesque image of a hutukawa tree in Kaikoura in New Zealand’s South Island.
Also featured in the design is the official Indonesia 2012 logo – a letter-carrying pigeon in the batik style.Pigeons are known around the world as a symbol of peace and were historically used as message carriers.
Indonesia 2012 is being held from 18 to 24 June with the support of the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie and the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately, and is expected to be the largest philatelic exhibition ever held in Indonesia.
Jakarta is located on the north-west coast of Java, and is Indonesia’s largest and most populous city. Collectors and philatelic enthusiasts from Asia and around the world will attend the exhibition – adding to the cosmopolitan nature of the city.
