"Justitiae Pax Opus"

The Department of Justice (DOJ) logo/seal features three stars representing the three main geographical islands of the Philippines; a scale symbolizing equality, which is balanced over a sword, symbolic of authority in the dispensation of justice. These symbols are superimposed over a map of the Philippines representing the country. The Latin maxim "Justitiae Pax Opus", meaning "Justice for All", completes the logo and supports the rationale for DOJ's existence.
