Leis in the Philippines
Many countries in the world use different kinds of leis to show their respect, gratitude, and honor to important people. Whether it’s a representative or official from other organizations or even a guest speaker or guest of honor for an event, a lei will surely send a message of respect for that person.

Lei also referred to as garland or wreath has a very vague definition. Technically, a lei is just any “series of objects strung together with the intent of being worn”. The Hawaiian Lei is probably one of the most popular kinds of lei and it’s also embedded in their culture. Hawaiian leis are typically made of real flowers, strung together and given to tourists, visitors and important people and is presented during arrival or departure.
In the Philippines, the usage of lei has steadily growing in popularity. Government officials are typically seen on prints and digital media wearing leis made of flowers or ribbons. Events are also catching up to this tradition as various expo and conferences are already adding rosette leis to their event needs.
