I can still remember how fun it was to experience being a part of a national event which commemorates a historical episode in Philippines history that occurred in my hometown. It was in Imus, Cavite where the first waving of the Philippine flag took place. It happened May 28, 1898 which makes Imus the Flag Capital of the Philippines. When I saw this article about urging Filipinos to honor and observe the Philippine Flag Day, I wanted to share it to my Tumblr followers, especially to those who are Filipinos. I just hope they would notice this as much as they did to my Hoi-Hoi post. :)
Filipinos urged to observe Philippine Flag Day on May 28
By Anna Valmero
QUEZON CITY, METRO MANILA—From May 28 to June 12, Filipinos are encouraged to display the Philippine flag at home, schools, government offices and other buildings in celebration of National Flag Day.
This year’s celebration also marks the 113th Anniversary of the proclamation of Philippine independence on June 12 when the first Philippine flag was first hoisted at Teatro Caviteno by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo in 1898, shortly after the Battle of Alapan.
