Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach to be honored with PHLPost stamps
By JAY PATAO
THE Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will issue a commemorative stamp in honor of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach who won the country’s third Miss Universe title at the 64th edition of the beauty pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada last December 20, 2015.



PHLPost Marketing Management & Support Services head Enrique Tagle said that the PHLPost board of directors has agreed unanimously on January 11 to issue the stamp.
Wurtzbach , 26, a Filipino-German actress and model who was born in Stuttgart, Germany and grew up in Cagayan de Oro City, will be the fourth Filipina world beauty queen to be honored with a PHLPost stamp.


 Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz and Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran were honored with commemorative stamps in 1994 when the Philippines hosted the 43rd Miss Universe Pageant.
On March 24, 2014, Megan Young was also honored with her own stamps after becoming the first Filipina to bag the Miss World crown in Bali, Indonesia in 2013. PHLPost printed 80,000 regular stamps, 7,000 souvenir sheets and 7,000 first day covers of the beauty queen’s stamp.



It is not yet known how many stamps will be printed in honor of Wurtzbach, or if the stamps will be printed in time for the beauty queen’s grand homecoming on January 23.
Wurtzbach is scheduled to arrive in Manila on January 23 for her week-long grand homecoming. She’ll be flying in from Jakarta where she will crown Miss Universe-Indonesia 2016 and will return to New York City (where the Miss Universe Organization is based) on January 31.
