Provincial Ordinance No. 540. This ordinance explores the importance of heraldry, the language of arts and symbols, which can be essentially used to further enhance and promote Cotabato’s image, identity, sign of ownership or trademark. The ordinance too can be closely associated with the appreciation of Cotabato’s bounties as we herald its historic centennial foundation on September 1, 2014.
