Preparing the flag

A flag maker in Santa Cruz, Manila prepares a Philippine flag for delivery to a customer on Wednesday, a day before the country begins celebrating National Flag Days. The occasion, observed between May 28 and June 12, enjoins government agencies and offices, businesses, schools, and private homes in displaying the national colors. 

The Philippine flag was first unfurled after the Battle of Alapan on May 28, 1898 where Filipino revolutionaries defeated Spanish troops.
