Burned during the ceremony were faded, worn, and torn Philippine flags collected from various groups, institutions, and individuals in the city. The ashes were buried on the building’s front lawn.

According to Section 14 of Republic Act No. 8491 (The Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines), a flag worn out through wear and tear will not be thrown away but solemnly burned to avoid misuse or desecration.
