The birth of the modern Philippine flag.
White triangle stands for equality and fraternity; the blue field for peace, truth and justice; and red field for patriotism and valor. The sun for unity, freedom and People’s Democracy. While the eight rays of the sun stand for eight provinces that revolted against the Spanish colonizers.
Designed by President Emilio Aguinaldo and sewn by Marcela Marino de Agoncillo. Made in Hong Kong.
