China 2009 World Stamp Exhibition Theme Days
These two commemorative covers were given to me by my dear friend Maria. The 2009 World Stamp Exhibition was held from April 10 to 16, 2009 in Luoyang, Henan Province. Each of the seven days during the event was devoted to a theme; namely Philatelic Exhibition Day, Youth & Teenager Activity Day, Post Day,
Heluo Culture Day, International Philately Peak Forum Day, Award Day and FIP/FIAP Day, respectively. To mark the event China National Philatelic Corporation specially issued a set of seven covers.
Two of these covers are shown here. They are of the 10th and the 11th April respectively. They depict the Philatelic Exhibition day: The inauguration ceremony and the issuance ceremony. And, The Youth and Teenager Activity Day: Children’s painting contest based on stamp designs. And on this ocassion some 2000 children exhibited their paintin skills.
