Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow Filipinos!

2017 Philippine Independence Day Google Doodle

According to Google, their 2017 Philippine Independence Day Doodle combines the beauty of the Philippine flag and the country’s unique island landscapes.

The artwork - which represents the 8th time that GooglePH is being one with us in this celebration - also features Filipinos gathered around the Philippine flag for a flag raising ceremony while sunrise can be seen over the water, symbolizing the Filipinos’ optimism in the face of adversity. The Philippine flag was first raised on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite as a symbol of the country’s independence from Spanish colonial rule. Now, on a daily basis, flag raising ceremonies are held in all schools and government offices while singing the Philippine National Anthem.
