On Year of the Water Rabbit Special Souvenir Sheet

TAIPEI 2023 39th Asian International Stamp Exhibition, held August 11-15, 2023, at Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1.  Organized by Chunghwa Post Co., Ltd., Chinese Taipei Philatelic Federation and Taiwan External Trade Development Council to expand and develop friendly relations and close cooperation among Federation of Inter-Asian Philately (FIAP) members, and to promote every aspect of philately in the FIAP region.

Phlpost issued for Taipei 2023 special souvenir sheets featuring Year of the Water Rabbit (Chinese/Lunar New Year).  The rabbit is the symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese Culture, thus 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope. The Rabbit of 2023 falls under the wood element, with water as the complementary element. Since water helps wood (trees) to grow, 2023 will be a strong wood year.  The Year of the Rabbit represents peaceful and patient energy. The water element suggests tapping into inner wisdom and trusting instincts. Together, the Water Rabbit indicates focusing on relationships, diplomacy, and building bridges in professional and personal relationships.
