Taiwanese Symbol

Post  Crispywonton on Mon Sep 07, 2009 8:41 pm

Hey Guys, I was on the Taiwan 10th annual Bonsai and Suiseki exhibition website and I frequently came across a symbol that I'd never seen before. If anyone could give me some hints as to what it signifies/represents/mean that would be much appreciated

I understand that this is a little naive of me but thanks in advance!

Right, that's what im guessing. Im just wondering if it had any particular significance like racial/cultural diversity or harmony.

Just a stylized grove of trees, I think.

Crispy Wonton,

The symbol you mention is the logo for the N.B.A.T. or the National Bonsai Association of Tawian. The N.B.T.A. is one of the largest bonsai associations in the island, hosting the annual Hwa Fong National Style (whispering winds) exhibition, which is the equivalent of the Kokufu Ten of Japan. As Mr. Cheng Can Hsing is show chairman and the current president of the N.B.A.T., his association will be the main sponsor of the event.

It is important to mention that, for the first time, the three main bonsai associations of Taiwan will be presenting a joint exhibit. The Taiwan Song (Pine) Association, The Hwa Fong (N.B.A.T.) and the Chwa Fong (T.B.C.A.) will be presenting their best works. Judging will begin October 29 and all international speakers will be included in the judge panel.

.....and yes, it represents a grove of trees.

See you in Taiwan.

Jose Luis
