27 Feb 2012 Commemorative Stamps Launched on the 5th Anniversary of DKI Naming
It has been five years since an enchanting new orchid hybrid of exquisite elegance was named in honour of Mrs Kaneko Ikeda, Honorary Women Leader of Soka Gakkai International in recognition for her commitment and selfless contribution to the movement of building lasting global peace.
SSA has since been working on nurturing the saplings of the new DKI hybrid in the local nursery. At the same time, the Dendrobium Kaneko Ikeda are also being carefully nurtured at the Kaneko Garden located at the SSA Headquarters where they continue to imbue the hearts of many visitors with its exquisite gentleness.
In celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Dendrobium Kaneko Ikeda (DKI) naming, a new series of commemorative stamps designed by the Singapore Soka Association featuring the DKI with Mrs Kaneko Ikeda was launched. These stamps have been presented to Mrs Ikeda and President Ikeda on February 27, which is both Mrs Ikeda’s 80th birthday and DKI’s fifth anniversary.
