Philippine Civil Aviation Authority says it's required ..

4.3.1.7 LOCATION OF MARKS ON FIXED-WING AIRCRAFT
(a) Fuselage/Tail: The aircraft shall display the required marks on either the vertical tail
surfaces or the sides of the fuselage.
(b) The marks required by paragraph (a) of this section shall be displayed as follows:
(1) If displayed on the vertical tail surfaces, horizontally on both surfaces, horizontally
on both surfaces of a single vertical tail or on the outer surfaces of a multi-vertical
tail.
(2) If displayed on the fuselage surfaces, horizontally on both sides of the fuselage
between the trailing edge of the wing and the leading edge of the horizontal
stabilizer.
(3) If engine pods or other appurtenances are located in the area described in
paragraph (b)(2) and are an integral part of the aircraft, the operator may place
the marks on those pods or appurtenances.
(c) Wings: the marks shall appear once on the lower surface of the wing structure as
follows:
(1) Shall be located on the left half of the lower surface of the wing structure unless
they extend across the whole of the lower surface of the wing structure. So far as
is possible, the marks shall be located equidistant from the leading and trailing
edges of the wings.
(2) The tops of the letters and numbers shall be toward the leading edge of the wing.
