Schoolgirl, 12, honored for saving Philippine flag
By: Jocelyn R. Uy / @mj_uyINQ
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 07:02 PM August 25, 2011

Janela Arcos Lelis, 12, wades through floodwater as she tightly holds the Philippine flag in a heroic act to save the national symbol from being swept away by the raging water on that stormy day on July 26. Albay resident Frank Lurzano captured the scene on film.

MANILA, Philippines–No one would have thought that the shy 12-year-old girl in red sneakers had achieved a feat one would normally associate with soldiers on a battlefield: Save the country’s flag.

For her deed, a little Philippine flag was pinned on Thursday on the left collar of Janela Arcos Lelis to remind all that this was the sixth grader who saved the flag from raging floodwaters when Typhoon “Juaning” slammed her hometown in July.

Lelis, from Malinao, Albay province, was given formal recognition by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) for what she did—the first such honor bestowed on a Filipino child, according to the government arm that promotes Philippine history and cultural heritage.

Mountaineer Leo Oracion reaches Mt. Everest summit
Published May 17, 2006 5:58pm

http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/6332/news/nation/mountaineer-leo-oracion-reaches-mt-everest-summit

Mountaineer Heracleo "Leo" Oracion reached the peak of the 29,035-foot-high Mt. Everest on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m. in Manila), becoming the first Filipino to ascend the world’s highest mountain.

The head of the First Philippine Mount Everest Expendition, Anthony Valdez, made the announcement Wednesday evening. The information that Oracion and his Sherpa guides had made it to the top was relayed by a liaison officer from Nepal's Ministry of Information.

Oracion, a member of the expedition, made his summit assault via the south trail in Nepal.

GMA 7 reporter Jiggy Manicad reported live Wednesday from Base Camp that Sherpas told him climbers can only stay at the summit for 15-20 minutes because of the thin air.

PHL flag raised in the West Philippine Sea | GMA news - June 12, 2017


Today, #LahingDakila raised the Philippine Flag in the West Philippine Sea to commemorate the Philippine Independence Day. We express our nationalism through our pledge in the continuous struggle for freedom.

The Katipuneros who fought for our Philippine Independence believed that kalayaan, could only be truly achieved when each one has attained kaginhawaan, kapatiran, and kabutihang-loob.
