History of the Nationalist People’s Coalition

The Nationalist People’s Coalition was born out of the 1992 Presidential Campaign.

Sometime in 1990, a group of private and individual political figures worried over the national, political and economic disarray, approached former Ambassador Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco to ask him to lead a national coalition in the forthcoming presidential elections.

Although Mr. Cojuangco was still weighing the offer, these “Friends of Danding” proceeded to informally organize in view of the limited time left before the polls.

 

Our New Logo

logoAccompanying the amendments to NPC’s Constitution and By-Laws, our logo has been re-designed

to reflect the principles and aspirations of the Party. The new logo design was approved in a General Meeting held November 12, 2001 at the EDSA Plaza Hotel.

The design elements in the logo have symbolic significance. The”sun” which is an adoption from the Philippine flag, depicts the nationalist character of NPC. The three overlapping “persons in motion” reinforces the segment in the preamble that says: “…to move this nation forward with renewed vigor and hope…”. The same figure lends itself to represent Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, thus indicating the coalition aspect in NPC. The colors symbolize the positive and relevant qualities of strength (red), purity (white), and growth (green).
