Laos issued on December 26, 2016 a set of ten stamps representing the national flowers of the ten country members of the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). Two of the stamps show Orchids:
Moon Orchid (Phalaenopsis amabilis) - the national flower of Indonesia
Hybrid Orchid (Vanda Miss Joaquim) - the national flower of Singapore


I will post the complete set of ten stamps in the Flowers Thread.
