PhilPost to issue ‘Tindog Pinoy’ stamps one year after ‘Yolanda’
MANILA, Philippines ― To celebrate the resiliency of Filipinos amid the onslaught of Super Typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan) in the country last year, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) will issue “Tindog Pinoy” stamps this month.
Eric Tagle, business lines manager of PhilPost and vice chairman of PhilPost Stamp Committee, said that the stamps “celebrate hope and pay homage to the camaraderie at the face of a destructive calamity.”
“The stamps feature an illustration of a growing plant symbolizing new life from the hands of different countries that helped the Philippines, and a rising sun symbolizing hope. “Tindog” is Visayan for “rise” – describing the tenacity of Filipinos during those challenging times,” Tagle said.
The stamps will be presented in a ceremony in Tacloban City on November 8, exactly one year after Yolanda’s destruction.
Rodin C. Teodoro designed the “Tindog Pinoy” stamps. 104,000 stamps have been printed and are in P10 denomination.
