   It is generally recognized that a national flower is the symbol of the character and spirit of a nation. The plum blossom is as an example. On the one hand, its resistance to severe cold, frost and snow reflects the noble character and the unwavering spirit of our Chinese nation. On the other hand, its form of three buds and five petals symbolizes the Three principles of the People, the five ethnic groups which comprise the Chinese nation, and the Five Branches of Power Constitution of the Republic of China.
  The paper used in the prints from 1980 to 1985 is 76-lb 〝郵〞(post) water marked paper with red-blue fiber and the locally-made mat finished, watermarked stamp paper with gum in the additional prints after 1986.
