Description
February 25, 2008 is a significant day of national celebration when the Honorable Lee Myung Bak is inaugurated as the 17th President of the Republic of Korea.

The new government led by President Lee Myung Bak will endeavor to serve the nation by attaining economic revival and national harmony. The new government is dedicated to taking the nation a step forward towards standing among the advanced nations of the world.

The new government led by President Lee Myung Bak aims to form a "practical government" that serves the nation through hard work. Based on economic revival and national harmony, the new government is dedicated to taking the nation a step forward towards standing among the advanced nations of the world.

Korea Post issues a commemorative postage stamp reflecting the hopes of the nation that the people will strive in high spirits and that the Republic of Korea will take a great leap forward in the days of the new administration.

With "global Korea" and the Korean National flag, Taegeukgi as the backdrop, the stamp shows the "working President" who is endeavoring to generate future-oriented strategies for the nation's development. And against the backdrop of a broad vision represented by the color of blue that symbolizes hope, the souvenir sheet expresses the image of the "strong Korea" that forges a quantum leap into a better future.

The commemorative stamp pack contains not only the souvenir sheet and pane but also the My Own Stamp that embodies, through 15 appealing characters, the image of a compassionate and "familiar President" who always stands for the nation's people, as well as the First Day Cover that shows "the President who is assiduously reflecting" about the nation's future.
