THE PHILIPPINE SEAL OF TRANSPARENCY

A pearl buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information
is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value.
 
The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy
shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire
Filipinos in the civil services to be more open to citizen engagement, on the other hand, to invite
the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance.
This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the
Philippine as the Pearl of the Orient - a shining example for demographic virtue in the region.
