Philippines Butuan Mission Christmas Ornament
This ornament is a great way to remember your missionary and their service during the holidays! The design of this ornament depicts the National Flag of the Philippines.
Made out of a lightweight and very durable transparent acrylic, these ornaments will not weigh your tree down and can definitely withstand being dropped by the little ones should they get too curious around the tree. The acrylic is cut into a 4 inch circle and then laser etched with the name of the mission and graphics inspired by the region served.
The design on this ornament is inspired by the Philippine Flag which depicts a sun with eight rays for each of the major providences that courageously defied and revolted against the Spaniards during the during the Philippine Revolution in 1896 – Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Batangas, Laguna and Nueva Ecija. The three stars surrounding the sun to reference the three major island groups- the Luzon group of islands in the north, the Visayan group in the south, and the main southern island of Mindanao. While the flag symbolises the nation’s ideals, patriotism, and aspirations, the flag also stands for the freedom that Filipino revolution leaders and ancestors had fought and died for.
Get one for yourself or send a pair out to your missionary and their companion!
