ANDRES BONIFACIO, KATIPUNEROS
AND CARLOS "BOTONG" FRANCISCO
 
     In 1896, Andres Bonifacio and the katipuneros launched an uprising against the Spanish colonial administration in the Philippines which, eventually, led to Philippine independence in 1898. This historic event served as the inspiration for the creative art works of Carlos Francisco, a Filipino national artist. The designs of the stamps were taken from these art works.
