HISTORY

CITYHALL

There are many legendary tales and theories explaining the origin of the name Pasig. However, the most convincing theory comes from the late Dr. Jose Villa Panganiban – a linguist, polyglot, professor, and former director of the Institute of National Language. He said that “Pasig” is an old Sanskrit word referring to a “river flowing from one body of water to another,” in the case of Pasig River, from Laguna de Bay to Manila Bay.

Pasig is one of the oldest towns in the Philippines. The Augustinians created it in 1572. In June 1901, Act No. 137 of the Philippine Commission incorporated Pasig in the newly created Province of Rizal. It became the Provincial Capital of Rizal until 1975 when the Metro Manila Commission was created under Presidential Decree No. 824.

On 26 July 1994, the Senate and the House of Representative enacted Republic Act 7829 converting the Municipality of Pasig into a highly urbanized city. On 8 December 1994, President Fidel V. Ramos signed it into law. The people of Pasig ratified this through a plebiscite on 21 January 1995.

Corporate Seal

pasig-logo.jpg

The Woman at the center of the logo represents the Mutya ng Pasig, the idealism of perfection in all aspects that epitomizes loyalty, goodwill and splendor of the City of Pasig.

The Body of Water on both sides of the woman is a suggestion of the Pasig River connecting two bodies of water, Laguna de Bay and Manila Bay both suggested by waves.

The Immaculate Conception Parish Church, founded in 1572, exudes not only the Christian faith but also history and tradition. The church is one of the oldest edifices in the city.

Industrial and commercial establishments manifest prosperity and progress, the hallmarks of the city’s development.

Geography
Pasig lies approximately on the southeastern end of the Pasig River. It is bounded by Quezon City and Marikina on the north, the municipalities of Cainta and Taytay on the east, the city of Mandaluyong on the west, and the municipalities of Taguig and Pateros and the city of Makati on the south.

Pasig City Signs LIBRARY PROJECT Partnership with Freedom of Information Philippines

FOI2

Mayor Victor Ma. Regis “Vico” N. Sotto of the City of Pasig and Assistant Secretary and Freedom of Information (FOI) Program Director Kristian R. Ablan of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the implementation of the FOI Program in the public libraries of the City of Pasig.

Attended by government officials, librarians and FOI officers, the signing ceremony was held on 23 August 2019 at the Pasig City Hall.

FOI Philippines’ eFOI Portal (found at www.foi.gov.ph) is an online portal for requesting information or documents from government offices. The eFOI Portal shall be used in public libraries to encourage Filipinos, especially those residing in the City of Pasig, to ask information from the Government.

FOI Philippines shall provide Pasig’s public libraries with information materials and collaterals, while the city government shall allocate computers to be utilized as FOI kiosks for the public.

Pasig City is the first local government to partner with FOI Philippines for the FOI Library Project. All other public libraries from other locations are encouraged to join the Project.

Pasig City is also the first city in Metro Manila to have its own FOI Ordinance. Then councilor Sotto authored Ordinance No. 2018-37 or “The Pasig Transparency Mechanism Ordinance” which was signed on 13 September 2018.

The City was also the pilot venue of the FOI Campus Caravan, held 30 July 2018 at the Kapitolyo High School in Pasig with 600 students as participants, and with Sotto as guest speaker.

The FOI Philippines continues to strengthen its efforts in improving the public’s awareness on the implementation of the FOI Program to encourage more Filipinos to effectively exercise their right to access information in the pursuit of transparency in the public service.
