PHLPost releases commemorative stamps to mark Philippine Independence Day | Rappler - Updated 6:11 PM, June 08, 2018

Considered as a National Holiday among the Filipinos, the annual observance of Philippine Independence Day was signed into a law by former President Diosdado Macapagal through Republic Act No. 4166 on August 4, 1964.

According to Philippine history, the declaration of Independence was held on June 12, 1898 by General Emilio Aguinaldo and Filipino revolutionary forces from the Spanish colonization.

Designed by graphic artist Rodine Teodoro, the stamp features the vibrant color of blue and red depicting a silhouette scene of men and women in the Philippine revolution proudly waving the Filipino flag and native bolos used to fight colonial forces.

Imprinted in the stamp are the word Kalayaan and the sun that shines - which symbolizes freedom gained through sacrifices made by Filipino revolutionary forces.


This is a press release from the Philippine Postal Corporation

Fast Facts: Burning PH flags

This practice is in compliance with Republic Act 8491, which states that worn-out flags should be solemnly burned to avoid misuse or desecration

< snipped >

The group said that the health-hazardous flag-burning “will not be in harmony” with Philippine laws that protect public health and the environment.

Just like in the Philippines, disposal of old flags through burning is also required in countries such as the US and Canada.

In other nations, like in Australia and the United Kingdom, burning is just one method of disposing old flags. Cutting the flags can also be done, as long as the pieces no longer resemble the original flags.

^The relevant law on the matter is Republic Act No. 8491 (aka The Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines). Might as well post links here for reference.

Chapter I, Section 14:
Quote
SECTION 14. A flag worn out through wear and tear, shall not be thrown away. It shall be solemnly burned to avoid misuse or desecration. The flag shall be replaced immediately when it begins to show signs of wear and tear.
