New Historic Filipinotown Arch

New gateway honors Filipino culture

The gateway was designed by Filipino American artists Eliseo Art Silva and Celestino Geronimo, Jr.

They incorporated Filipino cultural symbols including a parol, which is a Filipino ornamental lantern; the Gumamela flower also known as hibiscus to pay tribute to frontline workers; and the Sarimanok, which is a legendary bird originating on the Filipino island Mindanao.
