From September 7 to October 14, 2015, the Post Office and the Ministry of Education organized a national stamp drawing competition, with 8000 colleges mainland and overseas, to compose a series of stamps illustrate the Republican motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity". This decision is part of the strengthening of moral and civic education courses for schools, colleges, and high schools, to a free and informed ownership of the principles that underpin the Republic and democracy.
