MANILA, Philippines — Filipino netizens were quick to react as Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano presented the Philippines' logo for its hosting of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

The Philippines' top diplomat presented the logo during the 37th Olympic Council of Asia General Assembly in Jakarta, Indonesia last Sunday.

"Our logo will be the 11 circles representing the 11 countries bound together in the shape of the Philippines to symbolize that wherever and whenever the games are played, we are one and we win as one," Cayetano said.

Netizens, however, were not pleased with the logo, as well as the mascot designs, and came up with their own proposals.

Netizens have also been comparing previous SEA Games logo to the Philippines' proposed design for next year.

The Philippines last hosted the SEA Games in 2005 and added arnis, a demonstration sport in 2003. The country ranked first in the overall standings in 2005 with 113 gold medals.

More than 30 sports will be played in the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines, including arnis, athletics, aquatics, archery, badminton, baseball/softball, basketball, billiards, bowling, boxing, cycling, equestrian/polo, fencing, football, golf, gymnastics, judo/jiujitsu, karatedo, sailing, sepak takraw, shooting, squash, taekwondo, triathlon, volleyball, weightlifting, wrestling/kurash, wushu, arnis, dancesport and muay.
