PCC logo no text

The Meaning Behind The Logo:

  • The two triangles represent the merging of two cultures that when put together radiates a unique energy that brings out the best in both worlds.
  • Red represents Canada and Blue represents the Philippines. The red color of Canada further enhances the Philippine identity, and consistent with its value for a mosaic culture, it does not assimilate the heritage of its immigrants, but rather enhances its identity.
  • The maple leaf is a central symbol for the nation of Canada, as represented on its flag.
  • The “rays” unifies the two seemingly separate triangles – becoming one yet preserving the distinct nature of Filipino-Canadians. The colour yellow represents the sun, which is on the Filipino flag.
  • The "eight rays” represents the limitless potential of what a Filipino-Canadian can contribute to their community - eight (8) being a symbol of infinity.
  • The two helping hands symbolize programs and services that support Filipino-Canadians by mobilizing their talents and resources.
  • The two circles surrounding the triangles represent the Filipino-Canadian community supporting one another through unique challenges they face and celebrating their successes together.
  • PCC is confident and trusts in the talent and good will of Filipino-Canadians in contributing to a better Canada.
