LOOK: This is the Philippine logo for the 2019 SEA Games

The logo of the Philippines for the 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games has just been revealed. Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano presented the logo on Sunday at the Olympic Council of Asia general assembly in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Watch his presentation below.

In his presentation, he said, “Our logo will be the 11 circles representing the 11 countries bound together in the shape of the Philippines to symbolize that wherever and whenever the games are played, we are one and we win as one.”

Despite what seemed to be a nice explanation of the logo, it was not well received by many people on social media. Some mentioned that this was not at the same level of quality as our past logos and some even said that this is just lazy work.

On Twitter, username@sejoalzir shed some light on this.

@sejoalzir compared it to Japan’s logo for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Others dabbled in a bit of humor about it.

One user even compared it finding the Hidden Mickey.

On Facebook, some reacted saying that this looked like rubbers bands. Some even hoped that this is not the official logo yet.

The Philippines is set to host the 30th SEA Games. This will be held from November to December 2019.

What do you think of our country’s logo for the 2019 SEA Games? Yay? Or could have they done it better? Any suggestions?
