I Love Philippines?

It's good to know that I'm not the only one wondering...

I don't pretend to be proficient in the English language, but I think there is something wrong in the advertising slogan of the Dept. of Tourism. It says "I Love Philippines." I think it lacks the article “the.” It should read "I Love the Philippines."

--Paul R. Mortel quoted in "Running gags and comic set-ups" by Nestor Torre (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 28 April 2005).
