M1040: Colorful Moro Vintas Postcard

The postcard shows the colorful vintas on the Zamboanga waters in Mindanao. The vinta (locally known as lepa-lepa or sakayan) is a traditional boat made by Badjaos and Moros lining in the Sulu Archipelago. It has a cloth sail with assorted vertical colors. These boats are used for inter-island transport of people and goods.
