PHILATAIPEI 2016 LOGO
The logo features “post” in the ancient seal script, a trademark character in use since Chunghwa Post was first established in 1896, as its design base.
It is framed in a Chinese-style latticed window, giving it a classic accent.
In the background, a white dove leaps out of the diamond-shaped window and spreads its wings, signifying Chunghwa Post’s 120th anniversary, and its future of exciting milestones.
The logo is colored in a lovely mailbox green to set off the “post” character in granny-smith-apple-green.
This artistic arrangement symbolises new bloom and hopefulness.
The logo is surrounded by stamp perforations of varying sizes, suggesting that an extraordinary collection of stamp albums will take the centre stage during PHILATAIPEI 2016 World Stamp Championship Exhibition, and there would be a lot to look forward to.
