The De La Salle University – Dasmarinas (DLSU-D) is now the official Guinness World Record holder for the Largest Umbrella Mosaic Formed By People.
The Guinness World Record confirmed in September that the premier university in Cavite officially bagged the world title after its successful human formation using over 5,000 umbrellas.
The Lasallian formation dubbed as “Animosaic: The Humans of St. La Salle” recorded 5,459 participants, outnumbering and surpassed China’s record made in 2016 with only 3,099 people.
DLSU-D made its world record attempt on April 7, 2019, as part of celebrations for the tercentenary of the institution’s founder, St. John Baptist De La Salle.
DLSU-D University Advancement Office Director Marco Polo shared with Good News Pilipinas in a previous interview that the gathering was a multi-purpose event: to break the world record, to raise funds for university scholars, and to honor St. La Salle on his feast day.
“At DLSU-D we create possibilities. Animosaic is our way of honoring our founder St. John Baptist De La Salle on his 300th feast day,” said Marco Polo.
The Guinness World Record-breaking human umbrella formation was held at the Track Oval and Football field and attended by students, alumni, university administration, staff, professors, and families who formed the image of St. La Salle.
De La Salle University – Dasmarinas has been making headlines for being a pioneer and conquering new grounds.
In early September, DLSU-D scientists discovered that the native Philippine squid can be used to determine water pollution levels.
In 2017, the university became the first tertiary institution to partner with UNESCO in championing Journalism Safety Education.
