Elenita San Diego, PhlPost Postage and Philatelic department manager, said that they came out with the special designs to commemorate the international sporting event.

San Diego added that the designs depict four of the major games that would be participated in by Filipino athletes in the Olympic Games in London, namely athletics, swimming, boxing and shooting.

At the bottom of each stamp is the line "Games of the XXX Olympiad London 2012."

They also carried the logos of the event in London and the Philippine Olympic Commission.
