Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 2) — Former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III was honored by the Philippine Postal Corporation with the release of a commemorative stamp on Monday.

"The postage stamps we issue symbolize unity, respect, love of the country and concern for one another regardless of color, race or creed. When a former president passes away, we set aside politics and the whole country mourns," said Postmaster General Norman Fulgencio during the launching event at the Manila Central Post Office building.

Meanwhile, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said the release of the "Pnoy stamp" honors the former leader's legacy of public service.

Aquino's sisters were not present at the event but were represented by their cousin Malabon City Mayor Antolin Oreta.

Aquino died on June 24 at the age of 61.
