Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) ("North Korea")
30th May 2002
30th Anniv of Charter of Three Principles for Re-Unification


designed - O Sol Rim

Situated on the outskirts of Pyongyang, the arch features two women in national dress, symbolising North and South Korea joining hands and holding a globe on which the re-unified Korea is depicted.
The figures are approximately 30 metres tall.
The arch was completed in 2001, as a result of the "Sunshine Policy".

The Three Points of National Reunification.
The then President of DPRK, Kim Il Sung, defined these in 1972 during talks with delegates from South Korea and they continue to represent the basis for North Korea's foreign policy.

a. First, national reunification should be achieved independently without reliance on outside forces and free from their interference.

b. Secondly, great national unity should be promoted by transcending the differences in ideas, ideals and systems.

c. Thirdly, national reunification should be achieved by peaceful means without resorting to arms.

Here are two definitive stamps of the Republic of Korea which depict the historic South Gate of Seoul. The first is a 509 won value (Sc #104) issued on July 1, 1949, and the second one is a 10 hwan value (Sc #271) issued on December 18, 1957.

From wikipedia, "Namdaemun (Korean: South Great Door), officially known as Sungnyemun, is one of the eight gates of the fortress wall of Seoul, South Korea, which surrounded the city in the Joseon Dynasty. The gate, dating back to the 14th century, is a historic pagoda-style gateway, and is designated as the first National Treasure of South Korea."

At the time this 8 franc stamp (Sc #655) was issued, it depicted the gate of the National Library of Luxembourg. It has been replaced with modern building equipped for the 21st century. The old building began its existence in the 17th century as a Jesuit college.

From luxtimes.lu, "Luxembourg's old National Library building could be given a new lease on life and become the future home of a national gallery designated for local artists."

This 3 rupees stamp (Sc #459) from Mauritius's 1978 Historical Events and Maps pictorial definitive series depicts an 1880's view of Place d'Armes (street) leading to the gate of Government House in Port Louis. The ca. 1890's black and white pic shows a similar view of the gate from the opposite/street side. During the mid-twentieth century there was no visible gate at Government house. Today there is a lower, less formidable gate than the original structure.
