Joanna´s boyfriend is Filipino, and he was raised in Papua Nuova Guinea, so she asked for a design that mixed the two by including the sun from the Filipino flag and a bird of paradise.

We decided to place the bird of paradise on the inside of the sun as if it was perched on a branch, and we composed it using traditional tribal Filipino motifs.

 im a filipino before you do,, sun and star please look first ,, the meaning our symbols...the sun is wrong,,,

[TT: yes, we added a paradise bird in the center, and the rays are thinner... but the sun itself is ok!]
 I´m a Filipino too and I could say that you don´t need to put the thin rays because it lose the value of the 8 big rays. Just my thoughts!

[TT: yes, didn't want to lose the meaning... just keeping the original style while drawing the 8 rays!]
