### Kuntinkantan

Kuntinkantan means “puffed up extravagance”. It is the symbol of arrogance.

We will use the 5 pixel grid to trace out this image. The image of this is shown below:

This shape is easy to draw. It consists only of circles. It is a made up of a central circle that encloses the other 4 circles.

The plan to draw this shape is shown below:
1. Lift the turtle
2. Set the pen size to 20 pixels
3. Move the turtle to the position (0, -90)
4. Place the pen down
5. Draw a circle of radius 90 pixels
6. Lift up the pen
7. Move the turtle to the position (-90, 10)
8. Place the pen down
9. Draw a circle of radius 80 pixels
10. Lift up the pen
11. Move the turtle to the position (90, 10)
12. Place the pen down
13. Draw a circle of radius 80 pixels
14. Lift up the pen
15. Move the turtle to the position (-90, -170)
16. Place the pen down
17. Draw a circle of radius 80 pixels
18. Lift up the pen
19. Move the turtle to the position (90, -170)
20. Place the pen down
21. Draw a circle of radius 80 pixels

Using Turtle Graphics

We will use the template.py file and rename it to kuntinkantan.py.

The code for steps 1 to 5 is shown below:

turtle.penup()
turtle.pensize(20)
turtle.setposition(0, -90)
turtle.pendown()
turtle.circle(90)

The generated image is shown below:

The code for steps 6 to 9 is given below:

turtle.penup()
turtle.setposition(-90, 10)
turtle.pendown()
turtle.circle(80)

The generated image is shown below:

The code for steps 10 to 13 is given below:

turtle.penup()
turtle.setposition(90, 10)
turtle.pendown()
turtle.circle(80)

The generated image is shown below:

The code for steps 14 to 17 is shown below:

turtle.penup()
turtle.setposition(-90, -170)
turtle.pendown()
turtle.circle(80)

The generated image is shown below:

The code for steps 18 to 21

turtle.penup()
turtle.setposition(90, -170)
turtle.pendown()
turtle.circle(80)

The generated image is shown below:

Conclusion

At the end of this section, we have successfully used Python turtle to draw the Kuntinkantan symbol.

If you look critically at this symbol, you would see a possible inspiration for the Olympics symbol.
