Founded in 1922, National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) has had outstanding achievements in research and development and in fostering intellectual innovations. It has served both as a cradle for cultivating teachers and educational resources for Taiwan and as a model for higher education here. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the educational institution, Chunghwa Post has specially issued a set of two stamps with designs suggestive of intaglio that convey NTNU’s elegant style over its 100-year history, as described below: 1.NT$8 stamp: The main elements of this stamp are the bell and main hall from Taihoku High School (the Japanese-era forerunner of NTNU), as well as the statue of Confucius, which symbolizes the spirit of universal education first championed by the institution during the period it was called Taiwan Provincial College of Education. Combined with the university seal, these convey the glorious history of NTNU. 2.NT$28 stamp: Incorporating NTNU’s centennial celebration emblem and featuring design elements such as the campus’s public artwork “Big Lion” (a homonym for “normal university”) as well as its library and administrative building, the stamp represents the spirit of “passing down a 100-year legacy and serving as a model for a century.”
