Love is in the air as the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) released special stamps featuring the digital art rendition of “Valentine’s Day 2020 – The Love We Deserve.”
According to PHLPost, the four heart-shaped designs show the values important to contemporary society. Each stamp represents a creed: Love Nature, Love for Country, Love Knows No Gender, and Love Yourself.
The four (4) heart-shaped stamp designs such as the environment themed “Love Nature” takes on the color green, with a background of a tree that symbolizes life; the nationalistic themed “Love of Country” where the color and design of the Philippine flag and map are reflected on the background while little doves fly around to symbolize peace and love; the “Love Knows No Gender” stamp theme represents that love has no sexuality, race, color and gender; and lastly the stamp giving emphasis on “Loving Yourself” – inspiring people to have self-respect, a positive self-image, and unconditional self-acceptance. The magenta or purple inspired color illustrates a person holding one’s head high.
Considered as one of the most awaited Philatelic releases, this year’s Valentine’s Day stamps deviates from the usual romance theme and focuses more on the universality of love designed by PHLPost in-house graphic artist Irma Jane Junio.
The special stamps, souvenir sheets, and official first day covers of “Valentine’s Day 2020 – The Love We Deserve” are now available at the Philatelic Counter, Manila Central Post Office, all Mega Manila Post Offices, Postal Area 2, San Fernando, La Union, Postal Area 4, San Pablo, Postal Area 5, Mandaue, Postal Area 7, Davao, and Postal Area 8 in Cagayan de Oro.”
