Pedro Calungsod's Canonization Logo


Following the declaration from the Vatican of the canonization of Blessed Pedro Calungsod, the Archdiocese of Cebu has launched the local logo for his canonization slated on October 21 this year.

Centering on the theme: “Kinabuhing Gi-ula, Pagtuong Gimantala (Life that is Offered, Faith that is Proclaimed)”, the local logo, consisting of five basic elements was designed following the rules of uniqueness, timelessness, adaptability, scalability and simplicity.

Organizers emphasized that some other elements were inserted in the design such as the title of the event done in red color, converted image of Blessed Pedro, ten green leaves of the palm of martyrdom, islands of Guam and Cebu inserted in the palm, the Cross in red color at the tip of the palm and the year 1672 and 2012.

“In terms of the elements used, we chose the color red for prominence and visibility, the converted image of Blessed Pedro as a timeless image and contemporary comic art form, the ten green leaves on the other hand signifies the ten themes in the life of the blessed, the islands of Guam and Cebu as the place of his origin and martyrdom and the year 1672 and 2012 as the year of his martyrdom and canonization,” explained the organizers.

The local celebration of his canonization will take place in Cebu City in November.
