Miss universe organizers misspells Philippines

June 28, 2008

I saw some reports saying that the Miss World Universe misspelled our country’s name in the sash that our bet, Jennifer Barrientos was wearing. So i searched for pictures.


Indeed it was spelled incorrectly. Two L instead of only one. PhiLLippines.

The correct spelling is phiLiPPines. with a capital P.

More pics after the break.

What makes me wonder is why Jennifer didn’t see these. She should have read what’s written on the sash before she wore it. You can see from the pics that she was wearing it with pride.. errr. wrong spelling.

Wait, the organizers should have checked, and double checked the names of the countries.. right? For sure, this is not the first time that this happened.

So, for me its ok. They’ve corrected it anyway. Ako din dati nalilito pa sa pangalan ng pinas. If its two L or single P.

I hope this issue won’t get bigger. Sana walang maki ride na politician. Baka magkaron na naman ng congressional hearing.


Thanks to for the pics

Thanks to Nickilo for the correction of the pageant.

    “The correct spelling is phiLiPPines”

    I think Philippines looked better than phiLiPPines.

    I feel bad that the word, “Philippines” was misspelled… Ugh! This country has been existing for countless years… How come some people still don’t know how to spell our country’s name correctly? I am proud of my country the same way as how other nationalities are proud of theirs. Ms. Universe is not a small event… Organizers must have been smart enough and avoided this kind of mishap.

    This is not the first time that Miss Universe Organization had this error thing.. Actually, this year they had TWO errors one is for PHILLIPPINES, it should be PHILIPPINES and KOSOVA and should be KOSOVO.. and last 2006 they printed SRI LANKA as Srilanka and 1999 they spelled BELGIUM as BELIGUM.. Oh well, such a history.
