Pope's visit to the Philippines has an official logo

This is the official logo for the Pope's upcoming visit to the Philippines. The blue, red and yellow shades are the colors of the Filipino flag, which represents the country and the people.  The Philippines is known as "The pearl of the Orient seasâ?, which is represented by the yellow circle. The white cross symbolizes the Christian faith.  The themes chosen for the papal visit, mercy and compassion are represented by red and blue circles.  The two symbols appear to embrace the yellow circle, representing the merciful and compassionate arms of the Pope. Pope Francis' visit is only four months away and the details of his trip are available on the official website. YJA/JAE RR VM -PR Up: YJA
