Origin/meaning

The chief symbolises the main city within the diocese and its seat, Parañaque. It is symbolized by the crown with an "M" standing for the patroness of the city, Nuestra Señora del Buen Suceso de Palanyag.

The middle represents Las Piñas pictured by the internationally acclaimed Bamboo Organ housed in the parish of St. Joseph in the city.

The lower half symbolises the city of Muntinlupa with a small mountain near a body of water.

Red represents the Holy Spirit, and the blue, Mary. The gradation from red to blue is symbolic of the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit on Mary, thus the incarnation of Jesus (Luke 1:34). The movement from dark (color) to bright is the hope that through the episcopal ministry, the "dawn from on high shall break" (Luke 1:78) upon the people of God in the diocese.
