Gray and the three Filipino title holders of Miss Universe embody the colors of the Philippine flag.
In the year of 1969, Gloria Diaz was hailed as Miss Universe in a yellow gown. While Margie Moran wore white when she won Miss Universe 1973. And then, in 2017, Pia Wurtzbach brought back the crown wearing a stunning blue gown. Now, Catriona Gray was crowned as Miss Universe 2018 wearing red.
So, it seems like our Philippine flag has already risen and marks the history of Filipinos in the Miss Universe competition.
See how the beauty Queens stunned everyone during their era:
Incase you did not know but Catriona Gray just completed our Philippine Flag. <3 <3 <3
