philippines_flagSenator Richard Gordon proposed of adding another ray to the sun of our Philippine flag.

This additional 1 ray will represents the Muslim troupe who fought the first Spaniards who tried to invade the Philippine Island.

What does the 8 rays of the sun means?

The eight rays of the sun in the triangle represent the first eight united provinces that revolted for independence .

Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Tarlac.

It is clearly says that the 8 rays are those Provinces who UNITE for the sake of our own land, they combined and they acted as one to have the so called FREEDOM.

Ok let’s face it, the Muslim troupes did their part of saving the Mother Land but still they do their job separately from those who fought here in the North. The rays of the sun symbolizes UNITY and that is what those Provinces did.

How about you, do you have any reaction about this issue?
