The Center's Logo (Maranao sun) was designed by the late Corky Trinidad, in whose name an endowment was established in 2009. It is a modernized adaptation of the sun. The Maranao are a group of Islamized people in Mindanao who represent one of the oldest civilized kingdoms (sultanate) in the Malay world before the coming of western powers. Yellow, maroon and violet, among others, are typical colors preferred by the Maranao nobles for their flags, dresses, and other material items they use during festivities.
The site's background, on the other hand, is a blurred rendition of the T'boli handwoven textile called tinalak. The T'boli is an indigenous group from central Mindanao. More about this group and this piece of art is found in this site.
