Has everybody noticed this? The Google image today looks like the flag of the Philippines, to show respect and to let everyone know that today is our Independence Day, 111th to be exact.
June 12, 1898 is the date when General Emilio Aguinaldo raised the Philippine Flag and proclaimed sovereignty and independence of the Philippine Islands from the colonial rule of Spain (but June 4, 1898 was the date of declaration of independence from the United States).
Once again we commemorate another year of our country’s Freedom, Liberty and Independence. Let us continue to support our country, and celebrate this day in honor of the people who changed and fought for the Philippines in its battle for Independence. And that’s why today is a no-working holiday, and yes there are also no classes everyone!
