The year 2010 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the girl scouting movement, and Chunghwa Post is issuing a set of two stamps in commemoration on the theme: Girls worldwide say, “Together we can change the world”. The designs of which are described below:

  1. The NT$5-denominated stamp: The stamp features a design ingeniously implying a combination of two hands and two doves. The two open palms suggest the idea of devotion and sharing, and the dove symbolizes peace. Devotion, sharing and peace are fundamental Girl Scout values. Girl Scouts aim to actively contribute service to the community so as to make the world a better place.

2. The NT$25-denominated stamp: It features a dove holding multi-colored ribbons in its mouth to convey a joyous atmosphere. The ribbons form two interlinked hearts to represent the joining of hearts and minds. The design has connotations of love, cooperation and peace.

 

To add to the fun of stamp collecting, the stamps will be printed in the shape of a rhombus. Both the stamps feature the emblems of WAGGGS and the Girl Scouts of Taiwan in the expectation that the Girl Scouts will respect its rules, act with sincerity, and faithfully fulfill their duties, helping others whenever the opportunity presents itself and holding true to their organizational spirit of working to achieve a more beautiful future.
