Flag History
Adopted in 1898, this flag of the Philippines is very interesting. The sun and stars are Masonic in origin. The eight rays of the sun are for the eight provinces that revolted against the Spanish. The three stars represent the three main geographical areas- Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao. The white triangle stands for purity and peace while red is for bravery and blue represents patriotism.

Philippines National Anthem

Chosen Land (Lupang Hinirang)

Listen

Lyrics

Country Beloved,
Pearl of the Orient,
The burning [fervour] of the heart
In Thy Breast is alive.

Chosen Land,
Cradle Thou [art] of the valourous.
To the invaders,
Thou shalt never submit.

In [the] seas and [the] mountains,
in [the] air, and in skies of Thine azure,
There is beauty in the poem
And [in the] song for freedom beloved.

The sparkle of the flag of Thine
Is victory that is shining.
The Stars and Sun of it
Forevermore shall never darken.

Land of the sun, of glory, and loving,
Life is Heaven in Thine embrace.
'Tis our joy, when there be oppressors,
To die because of Thee.
