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

The photographs below chronicle the transformation of the USCGC Hamilton (WHEC-715) into the BRP Gregorio del Pilar. The sun-and-stars was fully raised on 1418H May 13, 2011.

This is the second ship to bear this name. The previous bearer of the name, PF-8, was also a former US Coast Guard ship, the USCGC McCulloch (WHEC-386), a Barnegat class WHEC obtained from the former Republic of South Vietnam.

In 2011, our colleagues at Damascus PE had to paint a large Philippine flag on the roof of the Embassy to make sure it would not be targeted by mistake. With more and more airstrikes being carried out in Tripoli during the past several days, we decided to do what Damascus PE did. This time, we had a large Philippine flag printed on tarpaulin and placed on the rooftop to make sure the Philippine Embassy can easily be identified as a diplomatic mission from the air. Let’s hope it works.

8 Photos · Updated about a day ago

https://www.facebook.com/pg/eastmincom/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2305718082821749

Phil-Indo Navies Patrol the Common Border NSFA, Panacan, Davao City - The Philippine Navy and Indonesian Navy patrol ships are currently conducting a bilateral Coordinated Patrol in the common border of the Republic of the Philippines and Republic of Indonesia along the Celebes Sea. The Border Coordinated Patrol, which aimed at securing the common border between the two countries, curtail maritime crimes and stop sea crimes including smuggling and piracy, was formally opened on May 2 at the Pinnacle Hotel, Davao City.

The Philippines and the Republic of Indonesia have increased this year’s coordinated border patrol activities to curb the smuggling and human trafficking at the high seas in both countries. The increase of patrols is also aimed at increasing the interoperability and capability of ensuring a safe and secure common maritime border of both countries.

The send-off ceremony on May 4, 2019, signals the start of the first leg of the activities wherein the Philippine Coast Guard joined and sends its contingent during the initial phase of the first leg. The first leg is expected to conclude on May 10, 2019, after reaching their final point in Indonesian waters. The second and third leg of the activities which will be staged mid of this year will focus more on maritime and security patrol activities, while the fourth leg will be a combination of exercises and border patrol activities. The coordinated patrol between the two countries started in 1975 when the Philippines and Indonesia signed the Border Patrol and Border Crossing Agreements, aimed at improving maritime security cooperation.

Terno-clad mountaineer raises PH flag at Everest base camp
April 30, 2019

Representing the country in a 10-day thrilling hike to Everest, a Filipina mountaineer took pride as she raised the Philippine flag in a red terno at the mountain’s base camp.

The terno — which emerged from the national costume of the Philippines, the baro’t saya — is a common formal dress worn by Filipino women.

Amaryllis Bianca Lawas, an adventurer from Malate, Manila, shared her inspiring photo on Facebook last April 28, and wrote, “Representing the Philippines [at the] Everest base camp in my red Filipiniana gown.”

Lawas also mentioned in her post that changing her clothes into a Filipiniana national costume outdoors while snowing at 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) above sea level and a -15 degree celsius was no joke at all.

She was then praised by netizens who congratulated her for her impressive patriotism.

TINGNAN: Pinasinayaan na ng AFP Northern Luzon Command ang bagong fishermen shelter sa Mavulis Island, Batanes o kilala rin sa tawag na Y'ami Island, ang pinakadulong isla ng Pilipinas sa bahagi ng norte.

Layunin ng fishermen shelter na ito na ipakita ang ating pagmamay-ari sa ating mga teritoryo laban sa mga taga ibang bansa na nais mag-angkin at makapagbigay bahay pahingahan para sa mga mangingisdang naghahanap buhay.

Ayon kay NOLCOM Commander Lt.Gen. Emmanuel Salamat, ang proyekto ay naging possible dahil sa pagtutulungan ng lokal na pamahalaan at mga stakeholders ng AFP. | via Eunice Samonte

BRP Davao del Sur LD602 added 21 new photos from May 26 to the album: MAVULIS PROJECT HANDOVER CEREMONY
May 26

https://www.facebook.com/BRPDavaodelSurLD602Official/posts/2290784837676141
 
BRP DAVAO DEL SUR (LD602) sails to the North! Once again, LD602 participated in an endeavor asserting our territorial sovereignty. Imbued with the sense of Bayanihan, a Sealift Mission was conducted to transport the materials needed for the completion of the Mavulis Project; and to ferry the different stakeholders to the Handover Ceremony in the northernmost island of the Philippines, the Mavulis Island (Y’Ami), Batanes.

The Mavulis Project is a shared initiative among various stakeholders to include the Northern Luzon Command (NOLCOM) and the Naval Forces Northern Luzon (NFNL) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Batanes Local Government Units (LGUs), and private companies and entities. The waters surrounding the Batanes Islands is a traditional fishing ground, however being prone to inclement weather and with mostly remote islands in the area, fishing is very challenging. The Mavulis Island is also located in the Bashi Channel, a major waterway for shipping and where major communication lines in South East Asia are laid. Hence, the project included the construction of a Fishermen’s Shelter, helipads, and a lighthouse. The construction was completed on 26 May 2019 and was turned-over by NOLCOM to the Batanes LGUs through a ceremony held on 27 May 2019. Future projects were lined up for the development of the said area.

In conjunction with this mission, LD602 also conducted maritime patrols in the Luzon Strait to ensure safety of navigation and the country’s sovereign rights in the northernmost frontier.

BRP DAVAO DEL SUR (LD602) welcomes to Philippine waters contingents of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force Escort Flotilla 1 (JMSDF EF1) during a Meeting Engagement at the vicinity of Cagayan de Sulu, Tawi Tawi on 28 June 2019. The JMSDF EF1 includes vessels JS IZUMO (DDH-183), JS MURASAME (DD-101) and JS AKEBONO (DD-108) with SH-60K patrol helicopters onboard.

The customary meeting procedure accorded by LD602 to the flotilla is a prime opportunity for the PN and JMSDF to enhance interoperability and strengthen relationship among like-minded Navies to promote peace and stability in the region. More importantly, it gave the JMSDF a glimpse of Filipino hospitality.

JMSDF EF1 is scheduled to call on the Port of Subic this weekend and further interact with the personnel of the PN. This further highlights the continuing commitment between the two Navies towards the peaceful use of the seas.
