Festival stamps from Singapore



Date of Issue: 25 June 2014

Here are new stamps on Festival theme from Singapore. Singapore’s rich and vibrant multicultural heritage is best reflected in the many colourful festivals celebrated throughout the year. SingPost continues its tradition of issuing the Festivals stamp set with these eight bright and cheerful rendering of the four most important festivals celebrated in Singapore – Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Deepavali and Christmas stamps.

The festivals are featured on two stamps each i.e. the 1st Local (S$0.26) and S$0.55 stamps. The Festivals 2014 stamp issue aims to help add a warm touch to letters and cards sent to friends and family during the festive season. SingPost releases stamps on Singapore festivals every two years, with the last issue in 2012.
