SingPost’s 50th Anniversary of ASEAN stamp Issuance Date: 8 August 2017

SINGAPORE, 8 August 2017 – Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) has released a 50th Anniversary of ASEAN stamp that is part of a joint launch by ASEAN postal operators to commemorate the milestone.

ASEAN was established on 8 August 1967 with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration by Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam joined subsequently so that there are today 10 member states of ASEAN. Over the years, strong and close relationships have been forged, maturing into a collaborative community focused on accelerating economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region.

The 50th Anniversary of ASEAN stamps present the national flowers of the ASEAN countries. The Singapore stamp features an illustration of the Vanda Miss Joaquim, which with its vibrant colours and resilience reflects the Singapore spirit.

Pre-cancelled First Day Covers affixed with the stamp are available at $1.05.

The stamp will go on sale from 8 August 2017 at all post offices and the Singapore Philatelic Museum. It may also be purchased online at https://shop.singpost.com/.
