The official crown for this year's Miss Universe-Philippines pageant has been unveiled, and it is symbolic in so many ways.
Yesterday, October 20, the Miss Universe-Philippines organization released images of the "Filipina" crown for this year’s competition, ahead of their awards night on Sunday, October 25.
According to their statement, the crown “represents the achievement of one’s mind over body as a Filipina. It will be a symbol of triumph over one’s journey of trials, hard work, and perseverance in obtaining one’s dream. A dream that has become a reality that would inhabit her mind, heart, and spirit.”
Every little detail of the crown represents a special symbolism that reflects “the true meaning of womanhood."
The caption read, “The swirl of leaves is like the lives of every woman who seeks success in different forms yet still keeps the Filipino values in their hearts. Every diamond embedded in each leaf lusters like smiles that sparkle the lives of people that she encounters.”
“The yellow pearls express creativity, intelligence, optimism, and fear of God - characteristics that make every Filipina a gem in her family. Sapphire, Ruby, and Topaz represent the flag of every proud Filipina, a woman who believes in the beauty of her race, the strength that runs in the veins of her blood, and the beat of her heart that would always describe a true FILIPINA.”
You can stream both the preliminary competition (October 23) and the final awarding ceremony (October 25), via www.ktx.ph. The streams will have a built-in live chat function where viewers can discuss their bets and fearless forecasts during the pageant. You can book your tickets now!
