The 51st IEC Official Logo



The Sun symbolizes our hope of glory; it is a symbol of a new beginning. It also symbolizes the Philippines because the sun is the principal symbol in the Philippine flag.

The seven rays of the sun symbolize the sevengifts of the Holy Spirit. The cup and bread call to mind the sacred species of the Holy Eucharist.

The monogram “IHS” (Iesus Hominum Salvator) symbolizes the Holy Name of Jesus. This also symbolizes Cebu, since the former name of Cebu was Villa del Santissimo Nombre de Jesus.

The boat, a common mode of transport in the Philippine Archipelago, is symbolic of the missionary nature of the Church. The people in the boat, each of a different color, symbolize the principles which have animated the faith of the Filipino people; green for hope, which blooms in adversity, blue, the color of faith which we cling to, and red, the color of charity, which urges us on. The aqua blue color of the boat is reminiscent of the Christian pilgrimage to Heaven.

(The artist of the winning logo is a 19 year-old fine arts student, Jayson Jaluag from Mandaue City, Cebu.)
