  • Darating ba ang panahon
    na bandila'y magmistulang
    parol sa bintana
    ng tahanang Pilipino

    Siguroy pag hapo na
    at paos na sa bidahan
    at pag tatalong tila
    walang katapusan

    Ilang kahong serbesa
    na masakit sa bulsa
    ilang paketeng yosi
    sa pag uboy sinisi

    Oh kay sarap ng pakiramdam
    kapag may nag pupugay
    Bandila ng Bayan
    sa harap ng tahanan

  • Today in History / May 28, 1898-2005 leon_azcarraga

    The flag of the Philippines shall be red, white and blue, with a sun
    and three stars as consecrated and honored by the people and
    recognized by law.

    The idea of coming up with a new flag was reached during the
    preparation of the second phase of the Philippine Revolution. It was
    personally conceived by General Emilio Aguinaldo, then President of
    the Revolutionary Government and sewn at 535 Morrison Hill, Hong Kong by Mrs. Marcela Marino Agoncillo - wife of the first Filipino
    Diplomat, Felipe Agoncillo, with the help of her daughter Lorenza and
    Mrs. Delfina Herbosa Natividad, niece of Dr. Jose P. Rizal and wife of
    Gen. Salvador Natividad.

    The flag was made within five days and handed over by Mrs. Agoncillo
    to Gen. Aguinaldo before the latter boarded the American dispatch
    boat, McCulloch on May 17, 1898 on his way to the Philippines.

    The revolutionists originally planned the hostility against the
    Spanish forces on May 30, 1898 but a bloody encounter ensued between
    the Filipino Forces and Spanish marines on May 28 at Bo. Alapan, Imus,
    Cavite where the Philippine flag received its baptism of fire and
    blood. Gen. Aguinaldo hoisted the flag as a sign of victory against Spain.


    On June 12, 1898, the Philippine Flag brought from Hong Kong was
    unfurled for the first time at the historic window of the Aguinaldo
    Mansion in Kawit, Cavite as the country's Independence was being
    proclaimed before the Filipino people.

  • DEPED AND DOT CALLS FOR RESPECT TO THE FLAG

    Department of Tourism Sec. Joseph Durano and National Historical Institute Exec. Dir. Ludovico Badoy called on everyone to observe respect and reverence to the national symbol of our country’s history and legacy as we celebrate the Philippine National Flag Day or Pambansang Araw ng Watawat on May 28.

    In support of RA 8941 declaring the period from May 28-June 12 of every year as Flag Day, all offices, agencies and mechanism of government, business establishments, schools, and private homes are enjoined to display the flag or flaglets. This is in preparation of the celebration of our 107th National Independence Day.

    NHI Exec. Dir. Badoy said the Philippine flag went through nine evolutions before it became what it is now. “The first flag was the flag of the revolution followed by an early version of the Katipunan flag where it had three K’s and arranged in an equilateral triangle. Then came the flag with one “K” at its center followed by Bonifacio’s Flag, Official flag of the De Facto Government, first official revision, Llanera’s flag, Pio del Pilar’s flag and Gregorio del Pilar’s flag respectively,” Badoy said.

    Our present flag is the brain child of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. He said “the color red signifies the Filipino valor is second to none. This was the color used by the revolutionary forces in Cavite when they rose in arms on August 31, 1896, until the Truce in Biak na Bato. The white signifies Filipino capacity for self government. The triangle signifies the Katipunan ideals of liberty, equality, and the brotherhood of Men. The three stars signify Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao while the rays and stars symbolize islands and provinces and the sun represents progress.”

    The color sky blue was originally blue adapted form the American national emblem and was later changed to its present color which symbolizes nobility of the Filipino according to historian Isabelo de los Reyes.

    The June 12 National Committee through activities to be held on May 28, wishes to remind the public of the original and profound significance of our National Flag. Making them known to our people will help sustain our pride as Filipinos and invoke nationalism and patriotism among our youth.
