Kite-flying as one of Filipinos’ favorite hobbies

July 26th, 2015 hurries to inform that the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) released the second quarter topical stamps featuring "Saranggola" (Philippine kites) of various shapes and colors. The colourful issue was unveiled and put into circulation on the 9th of July.

"The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) has issued its newest stamps showing the traditional motif of the popular "Saranggola", depicting the rich artistic culture of the Philippines", Postmaster General Josie Dela Cruz said.
Kite Flying is a favorite hobby or past time of Filipinos especially during summer season, using the "Saranggola", usually made of bamboo sticks and plastic bags.

Laid-out by PHLPost in house artist Rodine Teodoro, these colorful stamps come in ten (10) different colors, shapes and designs, all in upward position flying across white clouds and blue skies with the word "Pilipinas" in the background.

The excitement sometimes exemplifies or reflects the dreams and aspirations of people flying the "Saranggola".
