Starting 4 January 2016 the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) will be using its new seal which embody the characteristics of a world class Financial Intelligence Unit.
The new AMLC seal features a stylized young Philippine eagle rendered in blue, red, and yellow strokes. These main elements encase the text inscriptions “AMLC” and “Anti-Money Laundering Council”. The elements have no enclosure, signifying openness, freedom, impartiality, and objectivity of the AMLC, as represented by the Philippine eagle, characterized by strength and keen vision, to fly and soar towards its goal.
- The Philippine Eagle, our national bird, is the world’s largest eagle and is a symbol of “strength”, “courage” and “determination” in the pursuit of mandate; “independence” from outside forces/pressure; “honesty” in public service; “guardianship” against attempts to make the Philippines a money-laundering site; and the eagle eye for “clarity of vision”;
- Three strokes represent the three pillars or virtues of the AMLC – independence, integrity, and cooperation;
- Council’s acronym, “AMLC” is given prominence to make the agency more familiar to the public;
- The blue stroke represents security, trust, reliability and responsibility.
- The red stroke symbolizes passion, action, strength, courage and determination.
