Philippine Post Office releases commemorative stamps to mark the 75th Anniversary of PHL-U.S Relations


Wazzup Pilipinas!?

The Philippine Postal Corporation (Post Office) has released a commemorative stamp to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Philippines-U.S. Diplomatic Relations on July 04.

 

Postmaster General and CEO, "Mr. Postman" Norman N. Fulgencio represented by Postshop, Philately and Museum Division Chief Elenita D.L. San Diego presented the Commemorative Stamp Frame to US Embassy in the Philippines Chargé d'Affaires John C. Law held at the Independence Flagpole in Luneta Park Manila.

 

July 4, 1946 marked the formal beginnings of Philippine-US diplomatic relations when the Treaty of General Relations and Protocol (or the Treaty of Manila) was signed by the Philippines and the United States of America.

 

The official logo which was incorporated in the 75th Anniversary of the Philippines-U.S. Diplomatic Relations commemorative stamps highlights the common colors of the Philippine and American flags, which symbolize the two countries’ shared history, and the sun, stars, and stripes that represent hope for the future of this deep relationship.

 

The Post Office has printed 30,000 pieces of the stamp. In-house graphic artist Ryman Dominic Albuladora did the layout of the commemorative stamp which is now available at the Philatelic Counter, Manila Central Post Office in Liwasang Bonifacio.
