The Philippine Flag

 
FLAG OF THE PHILIPPINES

 The National Flag of the Philippines is a horizontal flag bicolor with equal bands of royal blue and scarlet red, and with a white equilateral triangle at the hoist; in the center of the triangle is a golden yellow s...un with eight primary rays, which represent the country's first group of provinces that started the 1896 Philippine Revolution against Spain; and at each vertex of the triangle is a five-pointed golden yellow star, each of which represent the country's 3 main regions -Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This flag can indicate a state of war if it is displayed with the red side on top.

Flag protocol
The flag should be displayed in all government buildings, official residences, public plazas, and schools every day throughout the year. The days of the 28th of May (National Flag Day) and the 12th of June (Independence Day) are designated as flag days, during which all offices, agencies and instrumentalities of government, business establishments, institutions of learning and private homes are enjoined to display the flag.[2] But in recent years, the flag days are now from May 28 to June 30 yearly to promote patriotism and to celebrate the nation's independence.

I am proud to the Filipinos especially on their spirit and resiliency in moving forward. Despite of all the trials and struggles that hit the country these past few months, they can still smile and laugh and even willing to help one another. The flag is their symbol of being a Filipino not just by the country itself, but also in words and in action.

Jeg er stolt over å filippinere spesielt på deres ånd og fleksibilitet i fremover. På tross av alle prøvelsene og kamper som rammet landet de siste månedene, kan de fortsatt smile og le og med villig til å hjelpe hverandre.
