ABOUT THE LOGO
The rising sun shines its
rays over a red and blue-striped ribbon, twirled to form the figure
100. Underneath are the three stars which are also in the Philippine Flag. The slogan aptly
states the reason for nationhood...that indeed, freedom is the true wealth of a nation. The
gold "Philippine Centennial" is reversed to frame all elements.
Logo by Edgardo
Santiago, and slogan by Joachim Medroso,
were picked from more
than 5,000 entries in a nationwide contest.
The winning slogan "Kalayaan:
Kayamanan ng Bayan" aptly states the reason for
nationhood ... that, indeed, freedom is the true wealth of a nation.
