SINGAPORE 18 January 2019 – Ambassador to Singapore Joseph Del Mar Yap proudly announces the launch of the official logo and tagline for the 50th anniversary of Philippines-Singapore relations this year on 14 January 2019.

The logo was chosen from 37 entries submitted in a competition jointly conducted by the Philippine Embassy in Singapore and the Singaporean Embassy in Manila from 12 October until 09 November 2018.

The winning entry is from 23-year-old Filipino freelance graphic artist, Renante Tatel Corporal.

His design was inspired by the “Griffin”, a mythological creature which is half-eagle, half-lion.

The eagle represents the Philippines, as exemplified by the Philippine Eagle, the country’s national bird. The lion represents Singapore, with the Merlion being the popular symbol of the city-state.

The griffin is bathed in gold to symbolize the golden anniversary of relations, while the wings represent each of the two countries’ respective flags.

“At a time when the Philippines and Singapore are about to celebrate a milestone in our partnership, it is indeed a proud moment to have a kababayan capture the essence our bilateral relations through Mr. Corporal’s design,” Ambassador Yap said in his congratulatory message.

With the hashtag #PHSG, the official tagline for the Philippines will be “Perfect Harmony, Shared Goals”.

Singapore will be using the hashtag #SGPH, with the tagline “Soaring in Perfect Harmony”.

Both the Embassy and the Singaporean Embassy in Manila simultaneously launched the official logo and tagline.

A year-long schedule of activities will be organized by the Philippine and Singaporean embassies in their respective jurisdictions to commemorate this important milestone in their bilateral relations.
