Finally! The country regained the crown after winning the Miss Universe 2018.
Congratulations to Ms. Universe 2018, Catriona Gray, you gave us, Filipinos the best Christmas present!
Who would have thought that after winning the crown, Gray will be the only one to complete our Philippine flag palette. If you can remember, she wore a sophisticated lava-inspired dress designed by Mak Tumang, which allowed her to stand out among 93 competitors around the world.
The designer posted on his facebook the details of Gray's dress that symbolizes "Fiery and lovely perfection.
"Catriona can be considered as the modern Daragang Magayon. It embodies the beauty, intelligence and ardent passion of the Filipina " Tumang writes.
MAYON: Fiery and Lovely Perfection Now, Catriona is coming home. She's celebrating her roots – she's celebrating …

Gray and the three Miss Universe philippines incorporate the colors of the Philippine flag.
In the year 1969, Gloria Diaz was hailed as Miss Universe in a yellow dress. While Margie Moran wore white when she won Miss Universe of 1973. And then in 2017, Pia Wurtzbach brought back the crown wearing a gorgeous blue dress. Now Catriona Gray was crowned as Miss Universe 2018 wearing red.
So, it seems that our Philippine flag has already risen and marks the history of the Filipinos in the Miss Universe competition.
See how the beauty queens surprised everyone during their time:
In case you did not know, but Catriona Gray just completed our Philippine flag. <3 <3 <3
