Caceres releases logo for Peñafrancia Coronation Centennial
An aureola, a silhouette of a crown and a hundred-year-old photo compose the logo of the 100th anniversary of the canonical coronation of the image of Our Lady of Peñafrancia. According to the logo’s creator, Fr. Jerome Gonzales, it is a representation of the historic event.
The photo at the center of the logo was taken on September 20, 1924 when then Apostolic Nuncio, Most Rev. Guiglelmo Piani, DD crowned the image at the Metropolitan Cathedral grounds. The silhouette was that of the crown placed on the image. Framing the logo is the representation of the aureola described as “a halo studded with 12 stars and plated in gold.”
Fr. Gonzales recalled that as a young priest twenty-five years ago, he also designed the logo when the Archdiocese celebrated the 75th anniversary of the coronation.
