San Mateo, Rizal’s Town Seal Details

You may not know the details of San Mateo’s town seal, the meaning of those images and words written.

Well here are the details of San Mateo’s seal.

The seal of the town of San Mateo shows “Bayan ng San Mateo” written on a white ribbon at the upper portion of the seal. The white ribbon symbolizes cleanliness and pure intention of the local government for its constituents.
The 15 small stars in the upper border represent the 15 barangays that comprise the town of San Mateo. The Sun’s rays represent liberty and freedom and the eight (8) provinces where San Mateo came from.
The three 3 big stars are for Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The colors red, white and blue represent the three colors of the National flag.
The field of the seal is the blue color, which is attributed to royalty, the ruling hierarchy, and is the official color of the municipality.
At the center of the seal are four important symbols, which manifest the primary aims of the local government (i.e. health, justice, education, and livelihood).
