MANILA - The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) unveiled on Saturday two commemorative stamps featuring Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.

Gray, who is in the Philippines for homecoming events, graced the launch and signed envelopes bearing the stamps. 

The special stamps feature two photos of the Fil-Australian beauty queen during her winning moment at the Miss Universe 2018 pageant night.

One stamp showing Catriona's portrait shot is priced at P12. The special stamp showing Gray's winning moment at the pageant costs P55.

PHLPost said the stamps will be available on Feb. 27. 

In 1973, PHLPost first issued special commemorative stamps for the country’s first two Miss Universe titleholders: Gloria Diaz and Margarita Moran.

It was followed in 2016 when Pia Wurtzbach won the crown.
 
On Friday, the Fil-Australian beauty graced her ABS-CBN Homecoming, a day after thousands of people welcomed her during a 4-hour parade through Manila's main thoroughfares.
