The 2 series of 4 miniature sheets with pictograms of 21 sports, included in the program of the Asian Games was issued by Turkmenpost in honor of the 5th Asian Games in Ashgabat on September 17, 2017.

In honor of the Ashgabat -2017 the Ministry of Communications has issued two series of post stamps. One of them with the mascot of the Games – alabai Wepaly demonstrating all sports included in the program of the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, another - with their icons. Together they represent a small "story" of symbolics of the Games.

Considering that a post stamp is one of the attributes of statehood, such as flag, coat of arms, issue of a new collection developed in the style of general design concept of the Ashgabat - 2017 and a coloristic scale of their attributes, once again underlines the high status of forthcoming competitions. Indeed, besides sports, the Game, first of all, have a great political importance and bear itself a huge charge of peace-making power.
