Tabukeños reminded of ‘Love of Country’
by Larry Lopez / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban reminded residents of this city about love of country, which was shown by the heroes who offered their lives and sacrifices so that Filipinos will gain independence from its colonizers.

He made the reminder before city government officials, employees, sector leaders, and the police contingent during the observance of National Flag Day at the City Hall grounds.

“There is no greater service to country than giving one’s life,” Tubban said.

“Today, let us pause and deeply examine our spirit of nationalism if we indeed are worth the struggles and fights our forefathers had.”

“To our youth, who are commissioned as hope of the motherland, let your love of country not be overtaken by love of gadgets,” he reminded.

Tabuk City Police Chief Col. Francisco Bulwayan also rallied his men to defend the land and people.

 During the Pagpupugay sa Pambansang Watawat, the city police contingent recited the Salute to a Clean Flag Manifesto.

The Philippine flag was first unfurled on May 28, 1898 after the Philippine Revolutionary Army defeated Spanish forces in the Battle at Alapan, Imus, Cavite.

Proclamation 374 dated March 6, 1965 declared May 28 as Flag Day to commemorate the   first unfurling of the Philippine flag.

On May 23, 1994, then president Fidel V. Ramos issued Executive Order 179 providing for prominent display of the national flag in all buildings, establishments, and homes from May 28 to June 12 every year.

On Feb. 12, 1998, Ramos signed Republic Act 8491 or the “Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines,” prescribing the code of the national flag, anthem, motto, coat-of-arms, and other heraldic items and devices of the Philippines.

It also set the official celebration of “Flag Days” from May 28 to June 12.
