A true champion is always prepared and ready to compete 
however stiff or easy the competition is.  
Never loses hope in losing, aspires more in winning 
and never retreats even when the competition looks tough.

Greece and Rome were influential cities in the past but they are now dwarfed if not obliterated by the many new emerging and prosperous cities like New York and Dubai but their glory and grandeur were never placed in the backroom of our thoughts. That is mainly because of the many significant contributions Greece and Rome has brought to the modern world.

ILOILO was granted the LA MUY LEAL Y NOBLE CIUDAD DE ILOILO (The Loyal and Most Noble City of Iloilo) seal by the Spanish Queen Regent Maria Cristina in 1896. From that seal originated the QUEEN'S CITY IN THE SOUTH moniker which denotes that Iloilo is the Queen's favorite city in the Philippines. Iloilo then became the Philippines' most important city with many of the country's significant academic, legal, political, economic and international affairs channeling within Manila and Iloilo only. Hence the title evolved to become the QUEEN CITY OF THE SOUTH because no other city in the Visayas and Mindanao region can or has ever match up with Iloilo's overall grandeur.

History is past and way beyond what is today but without looking back into history, great cities of today will not be what they are now had they not learned from what the past has offered.

Just like Greece and Rome, many cities in the Philippines have already overtaken Iloilo especially in terms of progress but Iloilo has remain steadfast with its history, heritage and culture. With Iloilo's many significant contributions to the Philippine and world history, no amount of progress can simply erase its wonderful past.

Therefore just like Greece and Rome, Iloilo deserves such preservation of every single glorious mark it has stamped in history. Hence the QUEEN CITY OF THE SOUTH title should always be with ILOILO.
