Mabborang – Regional Director, Department of Science and Technology Region 02 (DOST 02) and Chairperson of the Regional Gender and Development Committee, funded a logo making contest to provide a specific brand for the Committee’s identification in the Regional Development Council (RDC).

Jericho D. Fronda, DOST 02 GAD Staff bested 22 logo entries in Region 02 providing its precise and colorful logo representing gender equality and women empowerment.

The pentagon logo represents its 5 Provinces in Region 02. Purple for women empowerment, orange for free of violence, and its color palette represents all gender-diverse people marking its support to the SOGIESC Anti-discrimination Bill. The icon at the center symbolizes men and women in bilateral representation of the Philippine flag which means essentially “two-sided” that calls for a great representation of equality among men and women.

The logo will be the first to be established amongst committees in the Regional Development Council.

The official logo will be used for all the information, education, and communication (IEC) materials to be produced by RGADC2.
