The word Kapit-bisig is a Filipino term which means to hold together as one for the main purpose of achieving a common goal.

The logo symbolizes kapit-bisig and bayanihan, a unique Philippine tradition. It resembles the common custom in Philippine barrios during the olden times (when materials for building houses called nipa hut were made of light items like bamboo and sawali), and the community members volunteer to help a family move their nipa hut. This is done by literally carrying the house to its new location.

The colors used in the logo are inspired from the colors prominent in the Philippine flag: red, white, blue, and yellow. The three major island groups of the Philippines : Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao are symbolized by the three human figures garbed in native Filipino costume.  The sun and rays represent the vital role of the Filipinos in the social, political, economic development and progress of the Philippines.
