Universal Love on Valentine’s Day 2020 Stamps Issued by PHLPOST

4 new set of stamps were issued by Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPOST) last February 6, 2020 to commemorate the Valentine’s Day for 2020.

The stamps were  titled “Valentine’s Day 2020 – The Love We Deserve” with a theme that PHLPost says promotes universal love.

PHLPost’s new special stamps feature digital art using the popular character of the human heart bearing four types of love.

The four heart-shaped designs show the values important to contemporary society, focusing on current issues and are intended to touch on subjects the public – especially the youth – can both relate to and reflect about.

“We see the familiar symbol of love everywhere — from eating heart-shaped chocolates to sending text messages to a special someone with the iconic heart of the popular ’emoji’ or symbols,” says PHLPost referring to the symbols of love used in digital platforms such as the internet.

Each stamp denomination is Php 12.00 while block of 4 stamp would cost Php 48.00 for the entire set.

The four topics in the Valentine’s Day stamps are:

  • Love Nature in the color green, with a background of a tree that symbolizes life
  • Love for Country in a nationalistic theme where the color and design of the Philippine flag and map are reflected in the background while little doves fly around to symbolize peace and love
  • Love Knows No Gender theme indicates that Love has no sexuality, race, skin tone, color or gender
  • Love Yourself inspires people to have self-respect, a positive self-image, and unconditional self-acceptance. The magenta/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 were designed by PHLPost in-house graphic artist Ms. Irma Jane Junio, deviating from the usual romance theme but focused more on the universality of love.

The 2020 Valentine’s Day Stamps, Souvenir Sheets, and Official First Day Covers are available starting February 06, 2020 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, Cagayan de Oro”.
