Philippine National Flag Day 2020

The Philippine National Flag Day is celebrated annually on 28 May.

All Filipinos are encouraged to display the Philippine flag in all offices, agencies and instruments of government, business establishments, schools, and private homes throughout the National Flag Day period from 28 May to 12 June per Executive Order No. 79 issued on 23 May 1994.

To recall, it was on 6 March 1965 wherein Presidential Proclamation No. 374 was issued declaring May 28 as National Flag Day to commemorate the date the national emblem was first unfurled after the Philippine Revolutionary Army defeated the Spanish forces in the Battle at Alapan, Imus, Cavite in 1898.

Let us give respect and reverence to our symbol of national sovereignty and solidarity. The Philippine flag is the embodiment of all our country’s ideals, culture and tradition. (Philippines in Australia CME & Ronaldo Villaver)
