Raise the flag

Members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines carry a giant Philippine flag at Rizal Park in Manila on Wednesday to mark the 121st anniversary of the country's independence. The Philippine Independence from the Spanish rule was proclaimed by General Emilio Aguinaldo in Kawit town, Cavite, on June 12, 1898.
