The logo design reflects the vision of progress and development for the Philippines within the global context, as signified by the spreading rays of the sun, and the figure of a globe with the Philippine map at the center. The half-globe is further bound by a half-circle connected to the sun’s rays. The circle represents the private sector as the wheels of development. The color gold, often associated with prosperity, depicts progress. The use of color blue, on the other hand, gives the impression that such progress is achieved within a peaceful and stable environment.
