Flags flutter in the breeze in this file photo, stirring pride in Filipino hearts. National Flag Day was celebrated yesterday, commemorating the waving of the tricolor in Cavite City by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, to mark the victory of Filipinos on that day in the Battle of Alapan in Imus, Cavite.
The Cuban flag was created June 25, 1948. Its three blue stripes represent the three parts the country was divided into, and the white represent purity and patriotism. Also, the white star surrounded by a red triangle represents independence and the bloodshed of the battle to gain it.
