beliefs, and even the unity or
togetherness of the people in it.

stood and fought to preserve the
Filipino identity and attain
freedom and independence.

purpose. The history and value of this flag are connected to the

and respect our flag and its anthem and even our different
symbols. They provide us our identity as Flipinos or citizens of
the beautiful Republic of the Philippines.
