The whole world is mourning Corazon “Cory” Aquino’s death.
Pictures and video footage are all over the news, and I just wanted to explain something: the “L” sign, which was one of Aquino’s trademarks. The “L” stands for laban, one of the Tagalog words for “fight.”
I just thought this may be helpful to my non-Filipino readers.
Note: You can read the comments to see more details on the “L” sign and how it evolved. My readers have shared some historical insights.
