It's National Flag Day today here in the Philippines. It was exactly 111 years ago today, May 28, when the flag which was conceptualized by Emilio Aguinaldo in 1897 was first displayed in a battle. It was until June 12, 1898 when the flag was formally raised in Kawit Cavite during the proclamation of independence.
According to Section 7 of RA 8491, the Philippine flag should be displayed in all government buildings, plazas, schools and even in our own houses from May 28 till June 12.
To all my fellow Filipinos, let us be proud and display our flag.
