Philippines : UP Alumni Association Centennial Stamps

\"philippines\"The Philippine Postal Corp. has released commemorative stamps to mark the centennial of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association on 12th April 2013.Throughout its history, the UPAA has been fired up by its mission of fostering Honor and Excellence, Service and Leadership, the very same ideals held sacrosanct by the Alma Mater. Designed by the UPAA centennial anniversary committee, the four stamp variations show:

– The Oblation with the UPAA Centennial Logo in a purple background

– Façade of the Bahay ng Alumni building in a green background, likewise with the UPAA Centennial logo
– Earthworm-view of the Carillon Tower, with the centennial logo on a blue background
– The full view of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association Centennial logo

UPAA traces its roots to March 1913, when then UP President Murray Bartlett urged College of Law Dean George Malcolm to call a meeting to form such an association.
