      The pine, the bamboo, and the plum are known to Chinese people as the 〝Three Friends in the Winter Time,〞or the three fine qualities needed most in times of adversity. Chinese literati have always used the pine, hamboo and plum to stand for fortitude. The pine is evergreen even in the severest cold of winter. The bamboo stands upright in bitter, wintry winds. The plum blossom, the national flower of the Republic of China, only turns pure and fragrant and appears lofty and noble in the very depths of winter. The subjects shown on this set of stamps symbolize our beloved traditional values.
