In black on each stamp is also the emblem of the 8th SEAP Games, i.e. an eight-pointed floral star made of two squares put together and decorated with kanok motifs, and at the centre a circle with the logo of the SEAP Games, i.e. a circle of six interlocking rings. The latter is also depicted in white print, spread over the four stamps, and can be seen in full if the stamps are joined two-by-two in order of increasing value, as with se-tenant stamps.
