Covers - Taiwan

The same sheet on two different size covers. Thanks A N  Chaung. This sheet features the 2009 World Games, Kaohsiung.

The World Games is a quadrennial sports event. It was first held in the USA in 1981. The eighth World Games was held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan from July 16 to 26, 2009. The Taiwan Post Office commemorated the grand sporting event of the World Games, by issuing a set of two stamps and a souvenir sheet featuring the Kaohsiung Arena and the Main Stadium.

The Kaohsiung Arena is shown on the NT$5.00 stamp.
The Main Stadium for the World Games is pictured on the NT$12.00 stamp.
