They came, They Saw, They Stayed

The Philippines is a beautiful country. It’s an archipelago of 7,107 islands stretching from the South of China to the northern tip of Borneo with a rich Malay culture beneath Spanish and American heritage – a product of East and West, a blend that made us inseparable from them.

The Symbols of the Philippine Flag

The sun represents the beginning of a new era of self-determination.  The eight rays on the sun stand for the 8 provinces that rose in revolt against Spanish rule in the late l9th century.

The three stars stands for the 3 principal geographic areas of the country: Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.

The colours in the flag: the color white represents peace and purity; the red stripe represents courage and bravery; the blue stripe is for noble ideals.

The flag with blue stripe on the top stands for peacetime.  In wartime, the flag will have the red stripe on top.
