In celebration of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and Vietnam, a joint stamp issue on birds was launched.


In Singapore, the event will be graced by Mr Nguyen Dang Hung, Minister Counsellor, Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam to the Republic of Singapore, and attended by officials from Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Singapore Post. This is the second joint stamp issue between the two countries.

Beautifully portrayed in this joint stamp issue are the Grey Peacock Pheasant and the Red Junglefowl.

Depicted on one stamp is the Grey Peacock Pheasant which is drawn by To Minh Trang. It has greyish brown plumage with dark blue circles and white rings. Each tail feather has two green “eyespots” or ocelli which are especially prominent in the males.

Female grey peacock pheasants are smaller, and have a darker and duller plumage.

The second stamp featured the Red Junglefowl which is drawn by Eng Siak Loy. The cockerel has striking plumage, ear wattles and a majestic red comb. The hen in its streaky brown plumage is less spectacular.
