lattice tower / 鉄塔

1965Neth Antilles001

17 May 1965, Netherlands Antilles
Centenary of International Telecommunication Union
design: E. N. Ayubi

This is the 8th and the last stamp on the same theme of ITU – from a former constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in the Caribbean.

The zig-zag arrow, in between two lattice towers, is expressing wireless communication over distance.  Cute!

「国際電気通信連合の百年」を記念する切手の8枚目はカリブ海にある旧オランダ領アンティルからの発行で、これが同じテーマでの最後の一枚です。

電撃マークが連合のロゴを抜け出して、すっくと立つ2本の鉄塔の間をビビッと飛んでいます。見えない通信が行き来していることを想像させてくれる、微笑ましいデザイン。
