27 Feb 2013 Kaneko Orchid Commemorative Stamps
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 of 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 Dendrobium Kaneko Ikeda (DKI) hybrid in the local nursery. At the same time, the DKI saplings 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 the 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 were presented to Mrs Ikeda and President Ikeda on 27 February 2012, which is both Mrs Ikeda’s 80th birthday and the DKI’s fifth anniversary.
