What is the Story Behind OWWA’s Logo?

The LOGO was designed in 1981 by Mr. Paeng Asuncion, using a Greek capital letter Delta (visually denoting a triangle or a pyramid), which symbolizes CHANGE that may occur progressively, step by step, or rapidly, on a broadening base that supports a concomitant upward trend.

The vertices (points) of the triangle are coherent with the concept of “trinity”, implying the union of the key stakeholders: the government, in partnership with OFWs, and the private sector.

The red, white and blue represent the colors of the Philippine flag, emphasizing the true spirit of the world-class Filipino worker.

The inner ring represents the world destinations of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). It visually implies the upper half of a rising sun and pouring rain in the lower half.

The sun represents energy, life-giving force, warmth and sustenance. The rain represents the sun’s complement in the life-giving force.

The sun and the rain also represent the favorable and adverse conditions encountered by the expatriate Filipino workers in the overseas job-sites.

Both sun and rain symbolize the gains and pains of OFWs, the concerns centering on the welfare and well-being of OFWs and their families.

OWWA strives to provide timely and responsive interventions: 24 hours, seven days a week with assured quality standards. It goes with our motto: “UMULAN MA’T UMARAW…. ANG OWWA AY MAASAHAN”.
