  The Junior Chamber International, Inc.(JCI) was constituted on December 11, 1944, now called JCI Day. With 82 national organization members, more than 9,000 local organization members, and 420,000 individual members, the JCI is now the largest organization in the world for young men from the age of eighteen to forty. Regardless of race, nation, doctrine, or profession, they meet together in order to combine efforts to improve the life of humanity.

  The China Junior Chamber of Commerce was established on March 1, 1953. For years, with firm beliefs and lofty ideals, they have made a tremendous contribution to the country in every aspect. In order to promote international understanding and friendship, they took the opportunity to host the 27th JCI World Congress. This was the first time that the Congress had been held in the Republic of China. To mark the high ideal of JCI as well as to strengthen international relationships, a set of commemorative stamps was issued on November 12, 1972, the inauguration date of the World Congress. This set of three stamps has similar designs, the emblem of JCI and the emblem of the XXⅦ JCI World Congress-the eye of the emperor. There are three eyes of the emperor, ranging from the smaller size to the larger, each partly intercepting the other, symbolizing the rise and the ever-increasing growth of the JCI.
