Aug-Photo-A-Day 5: Logo

I'm showing you this logo representing my home country, Philippines.

Photo by me

It is the "Coat of Arms of the Philippines."


It features the eight-rayed sun of the Philippines with each ray representing the eight provinces (Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Manila, Laguna, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Tarlac) which were placed under martial law by Governor-General Ramón Blanco during the Philippine Revolution, and the three five-pointed stars representing the three primary geographic regions of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. 

On the blue field on the dexter side is the eagle of the United States, and on the red field on the sinister is the lion of Coat of arms of Castile and León, both representing colonial history. 

It is also used by the Philippine National Bank.
