The eight-pointed symbol is the sun of the Philippine flag. The eight rays of the sun represents the first eight province that revolted against Spanish rule. The Philippine sun is the device used by the Philippine Navy for its line officers.
The inscription that looks like an italicized letter "I" is an old Baybayin symbol letter "K" or "Ka". It stands for Kagitingan meaning courage, heroism or valor.
