For the 125th anniversary of Rizal’s martyrdom, the Post Office has issued new stamps.

On December 30, the Philippine Post Office will issue new postage stamps to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Dr. Jose P. Rizal’s martyrdom, with the theme “Rizal: Para sa Agham, Katotohanan at Buhay.”

Jose Rizal, the Philippines’ national hero and pride of the Malayan race, was born in the town of Calamba, Laguna, on June 19, 1861.

He was a talented student who had won literary competitions since he was a child.

Rizal was a versatile scholar most remembered for his two well-known novels, Noli Me Tángere and El Filibusterismo, both of which sparked the Philippine revolution.

The stamps show his life, deeds, and heroism, as well as his natural love and sympathy for the Filipino people and country.

As a doctor, scientist, and linguist, Rizal is respected for his intellectual brilliance.

He started a revolution to overthrow colonial repression through his writings, while his death triggered a revolution to overthrow colonial persecution.

“Filipino inventiveness and brilliance should be appreciated worldwide.” Rizal’s unwavering commitment to achieving his aims should serve as an inspiration to Filipinos, particularly the youth. As a result, we should model ourselves after our national hero’s characteristics and ideas,” Postmaster General Norman Fulgencio said in a statement released on Wednesday.

“By issuing stamps to honor artists, sports personalities, musicians, and scientists, as well as other national and international figures, both living and posthumously, the post office is now recognizing the talent and industry of Filipinos here and abroad in pursuit of excellence and distinction in their work or profession.”

Fulgencio stated that it would be excellent to honor all Filipinos who have made significant contributions to the nation’s joy, inspiration, and pride.

The stamps, which were designed by PHLPost’s in-house graphic artists Israel A. Viyo and Eunice Dabu, were printed in 40,000 copies. Each one will be sold for PHP12.

Stamps and Official First Day Covers are now available at the Manila Central Post Office’s Philatelic Counter.
