The United Arab Emirates (UAE) issued two commemorative stamps Wednesday to mark the opening of its national pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, the state news agency WAM reported.
The newly-issued stamps bear the pictures of the UAE pavilion, a unique building inspired by the Gulf nation's massive desert sand dunes, the report said.
"The eye-catching pavilion is a fitting symbol of the UAE and its impressive efforts to build sustainable lives for all its citizens. In just a few decades, the urban landscape of the UAE has been transformed with modern cities and well-planned infrastructure," Abdullah Al Ashram, chief executive of Emirates Post, was quoted as saying.
"We are honored to commemorate the UAE's participation at this prestigious international show through a set of these special stamps," he added.
Occupying an area of 6,000 square meters in the heart of the Expo site, the pavilion showcases the prosperity, harmony, culture and innovativeness of the UAE to the world, according to WAM.
