The Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association launched a series of limited-edition silk scarves and ties to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The circles and squares on the scarf represent Japan and Taiwan and symbolize the strong alliance between the two countries. The logo on the tie is an ideogram of the character "人" (person) with a dot hovering above. Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the character is actually a marriage of the letters "j" for Japan and "t" for Taiwan. The shape of the logo also symbolizes the unity of the people of Taiwan and Japan.
