On June 12, 1898, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo declared Philippine independence from Spain. However Aguinaldo's independence declaration was short lived. The Americans took control of the Philippines and only granted Filipinos full independence on July 4, 1946.
I am encouraging everyone to display Philippine flags in your homes and offices! Show your love and pride for the country! Happy 114th Independence Day to all of us!
Viva Las Islas Filipinas! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
