To commemorate this big philatelic event,  New Zealand Post is issuing an exhibition miniature sheet and exhibition souvenir cover.

This is all for Today'…..More in Next Post….Until then ….Have a Nice Holiday !!


Jakarta is located on the north-west coast of Java, and is Indonesia’s largest and most populous city. Collectors and philatelic enthusiasts from Asia and around the world will attend the exhibition – adding to the cosmopolitan nature of the city.



The exhibition miniature sheet incorporates three stamps from the ‘2012 New Zealand Native Trees’ stamp issue. The stamps are set against a picturesque image of a pōhutukawa tree in Kaikoura in New Zealand’s South Island. Also featured in the design is the official Indonesia 2012 logo - a letter-carrying pigeon in the batik style. Pigeons are known around the world as a symbol of peace and were historically used as message carriers.
