Description
The 11th Orient and Southeast Asian Lions Convention is held in the Republic of Korea on September 28, 1972. The meeting will be held for three days.

Lions Club was first organized in 1917 by Melvin Jones, an American businessman, as a nonpolitical, nonreligious group under the motto "We Serve." Lions stands for Liberty Intelligence Our Nation's Safety, which is the slogan of the club. The club, headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois of the United States, now has more than 25,400 member clubs in 147 countries of the world with a total membership of 980,000 individuals. These members, whose occupations vary widely, are playing a major role in the community development in their regions and in various international services as well.

There are 155 regional Lions Clubs with a total membership of 6,000 in the Republic of Korea, which have been organized since the birth of Seoul Lions Club in 1959.

The 11th Convention will be attended by about 4,000 members from 10 countries: the Republic of China, the Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, the Republic of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea. The main subject of their discussion at the meeting is "Togetherness and Mutual Respect." The gathering will also afford them an opportunity to observe the unique culture and tradition of our country and see many aspects of our fast-paced national development.

In order to give this meeting broad publicity at home and abroad and hoping that it will produce abundant results that will further promote the welfare of mankind and the cause of world peace, the Ministry of Communications is issuing this commemorative stamp.
