 DOST WITH TEXT

Excellence, Relevance, Cooperation and Cost-effectiveness

The logo of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) consists essentially of four circles joined together side by side to form a square. The circles symbolize unit particles, the building blocks of nature which are the subject and substance of science and technology. The circle design gives an illusion of movement signifying progress through Science and Technology.

The space in the center of the joined circles forms a four-pointed star symbolic of scientific creativity.
The logo' s three-color scheme represents the unknown(black), truth and enlightenment (white) and progress (blue).
The logo's four circles represent the four guiding principles in our S&T development: Excellence, Relevance, Cooperation and Cost-effectiveness
