Name: Kaohsiung MRT
Date of Issue: 7 April 2009
Denominations: NT$5.00, NT$25.00
To highlight the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit System —a major national transportation infrastructure project—Chunghwa Post is issuing a set of two stamps, featuring the Central Park Station and the World Games Station. Central Park Station: This underground station comprises two levels, and the station’s architecture blends into the landscape of adjacent Central Park. A gigantic canopy-like roof, which resembles a flying leaf, was constructed to cover the entrance. Conveying the design concept of “to soar,” it demonstrates a robust and constant vitality. World Games Station: Inspired by the special physical environment of Kaohsiung and meant to show the special characteristics of a harbor city, the central design concept of this elevated station focuses on sailing, and the station building resembles a ship, befitting a major center of international shipping.

    I've had a lot of trouble identifying the country of origin of many of your announcements. Could you please be sure to include that information?

    The name of the issuing country can be found on the second row of each entry. It is located between the posting time and the comment link.
