    Philippine Sun

  • 7 years ago

    The Philippine national flag has a rectangular design that consists of a white equilateral triangle, symbolizing equality and fraternity; a horizontal blue stripe for peace, truth, and justice; and a horizontal red stripe for patriotism and valor. In the center of the white triangle is an eight-rayed golden sun symbolizing unity, freedom, people's democracy, and sovereignty. Each ray represents one of the first eight provinces that started the 1896 Philippine Revolution against Spain. Ambrosio Rianzares Bautista, who wrote the Philippine Declaration of Independence and who read it on the occasion of its proclamation on June 12, 1898, has listed the eight provinces as Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Laguna, and Batangas. Three five-pointed stars, one for each of the triangle's points, stand for the three major islands where the revolution started: Luzon, Panay Island and Mindanao, as mentioned in the 1898 Declaration of Independence.

    It is a sun with 8 rays coming off of it. Actually a sun, no symbolism needed.

    I think you mean what does it symbolize "The eight primary rays of the sun represent the first eight provinces (Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, and Tarlac)"

  • It symbolizes the 8 first cities that led the revolution against the Americans!
