Philippine (Tagalog ): Bighari The flower-loving daughter of Bathala who was the goddess of the rainbow and known for her tardiness (although her tardiness is not intentional). A story tells that she was cursed by her father to stay on earth forever because of her failure to attend a family council in Kaluwalhatian on time again. It is her arch of multicolored flowers that we see in the sky and call bahaghari (“Rainbow” in Tagalog). Due to her association with flowers, she is also known as a deity of flowers. Her emblems are the rainbow and a multi-colored flower.
