Independence Day historic landmarks featured in stamps

In observance of Philippine Independence Day on June 12, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will release four prominent and ancient landmarks visited during Independence Day celebrations. These are the Jose Rizal National Monument in Rizal Park, Manila; Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan; President Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite; and the Andres Bonifacio Monument in Caloocan City.

The annual observance of Philippine Independence Day was signed into law by former President Diosdado Macapagal via Republic Act No. 4166 on August 4, 1964. According to Philippine records, the announcement of Independence was hung on June 12, 1898, using General Emilio Aguinaldo and Filipino revolutionary forces from the Spanish colonization.

The Philippines flag was raised, and its countrywide anthem became a play for the first time in 1898. “It is, however, fitting to memorialize through the issuance of a commemorative stamp, these historical landmarks that represent the blood and sacrifices earned with the aid of our martyrs, so as for our next era to cherish and consider,” Postmaster General Joel Starr said.

The Independence Day stamps feature vibrant blue and pink designs, signifying the Philippine Flag’s shade with the close-up photographs of the four brilliant and ancient monuments in Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, and Caloocan City. A gold foil embellishment in the stated landmarks can also be seen in the stamps to make them more appealing and exciting to collectors.

Designed using in-house image layout artist Rodine Teodoro, PHLPost has published 102 four hundred copies of the stamps, to be bought at P12 each. The commemorative stamps and official first-day cover may be available beginning June 12, 2017, at the Post Shop, Central Post Office, Door 203, Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila, and area submit offices nationwide.
