PRESS RELEASE: PHLPost releases 225th Founding Anniversary of Sta. Rosa Laguna

The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) is releasing “225th Founding Anniversary of the City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna,” stamp on January 18, 2017, in commemoration of Sta. Rosa’s 225th founding anniversary.
The City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, also known as the “Lion City of South Luzon,” is widely known for being home to a famous amusement park. It was founded on January 18, 1792. The town folks of Sta. Rosa were helpful in the Declaration of Philippine Independence from Spain during the revolutionary period in 1898. Revolutionaries from Sta. Rosa were also cited as among those who fought alongside Pio del Pilar during the Philippine-American War.
“PHLPost is privileged to take part in this momentous occasion. We are proud to present the ‘225th Founding Anniversary of the City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna,’ stamp, which shows landmarks of the beautiful city that is Sta. Rosa,” Assistant Post Master General for Marketing and 
Management Support Services Luis Carlos said.
Among the most popular tourist attractions in Sta. Rosa is the Sta. Rosa Arc. The original “Bantayang Bato” was built in 1972, the year when Sta. Rosa was founded. After being refitted, it is now near the marketplace and was designed after the Arc de Triomphe in Champs Elysees, Paris, France.
The stamp, which bears the official logo of the City of Sta. Rosa, features a bust of a lion, the fa├žade of Sta. Rosa City Hall, Museo de Santa Rosa, Sta. Rosa City Plaza, Sta. Rosa Arc, and Sta. Rosa de Lima Parish.
PHLPost commissioned security printer Amstar Co. Inc. to print 101,000 copies of the “225th Founding Anniversary of the City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna,” stamp, which is sold at P12 each. The stamp was designed by PHLPost in-house graphic artist Rodine C. Teodoro.
You may now avail yourself of the stamp at the Post Shop, Central Post office, Door 203, Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila, and area post offices nationwide and is only available until January 17, 2018 or until supplies last. For inquiries, please call 527-01-08 or 527-01-32.
