The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) issues a commemorative
cover in honor of the 100-year anniversary of the Province of
Marinduque had been attached to the island province Mindoro and to
Lubang, making up a province before being annexed to Tayabas.
Through the passage of Public Act No. 2280 on February 21, 1920 by
the Philippine Congress, Marinduque attained its provincehood once
more. This year, we
mark the 100th anniversary of this event.
The island-province of Marinduque is known for holding one of the
most famous religious festivals of the Philippines, the Moriones
Festival, regularly held during Semana Santa or Holy Week.
In honor of this momentous occasion, PHLPost issued commemorative

along with special slogan cancel.
The slogan bears the image of the seal of the Province of
Marinduque as well as the insignia for the centennial celebrations.
