2019 VALENTINE'S DAY - KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS
Valentine’s Day or “Araw ng mga Puso” in the vernacular is
celebrated worldwide annually on February 14.
Valentine’s Day is associated with romantic and evolved into an
occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by
sending flowers, confectionery, or greeting cards, known as
Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include hearts, doves,
and cupid. This year’s Valentine’s stamps featured the Filipino king
and queen of hearts in national costumes to imbibe the Filipiniana
way of celebrating the “Araw ng mga Puso” in our country.
As what the artist’s concept says, “The king is giving his heart to
his queen and in return the queen gives her words of endearment as
an expression of her love to her king”.
