    Default Balintawak Logo

    I was wondering if anyone here knows the significance of the 'bull's head' in the logo for Teovel Balintawak. It's my understanding that:

    1. stick-obviously for the tool used
    2. lightning bolt-i'll assume quickness, reflexes?
    3. scales- justice
    4. bull's head-?

    It would be great if other lineages would chime in with their logos too and explain the pieces of them. Necopa, Original, Atillo etc.

    The scales are for balance
    It's a carabao not a bull's head. The carabao is a sub species of water buffalo that is main work animal for agriculture in the philippines. I believe it stands for strength and hard work.

    Don't forget the ominous EYE! Set over the scales it means "all are equal under the eyes of god" --at least that what Nong Winnie De La Rosa told me in Cebu back in 1992.

    BTW, what's up Pete?

    Thanks for the information so far guys.

    'Don't forget the ominous EYE! '

    the only 'eye' I remember seeing is the Tabimina logo but from what I remember there are no scales.

    ?

    Hey Guro Mike. No, not working on a logo. Just trying to start a new thread for conversation, and my own education.

    I'll give you a call soon, so we can make a training session.
