Rotary International 100th Anniversary

The Philippine Rotary Centennial stamp is a joint project of the Rotary Club of Makati Central (RCMC) and the R.I. District 3830. 

The Centennial Stamp bears the Bayanihan design which was chosen because it also symbolizes Rotary's Ideal of Service, particularly referring to the Filipinos' spirit of unity and cooperation and the Filipino value of helping one another and working together toward the attainment of a worthwhile goal. 

It is RCMC's humble share to commemorate the Centennial of Rotary International through an artistic depiction of the Bayanihan spirit, which Rotarians extend to countless people through their Clubs' various outreach projects.
