Visit Korea Year

Date of Issue : 04 January 2010

On the occasion of “2010∼2012 Visit Korea Year,” Korea invites the world to Korea.

The grand prize winning piece (Yongsoon NA’s Saekdongeolgul) and Award of Excellence piece (Jaekuk JUNG’s Taegeukmaji) under the theme of general category -- “Visit Korea Year”-- of the 2010 International Postage Stamp Design Contest are issued as stamps. Saekdongeolgul expresses, using Korea’s unique pattern, Saekdong, the smiling face that greets guests. Taegeukmaji that utilizes Taegukgi, the national flag of Korea, as a motive, expresses two figures, one dressed in Hanbok, traditional Korean attire, and the other in modern clothing, with raised hands in extending a warm welcome to his guests.
