The Masonic Roots of the Flag of the Philippines

Today is the National Flag Day of my country of origin- the Philippines. This nation's flag design has deep Masonic roots. Designed by a zealous Freemason Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo- the first President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Pay attention to the 3 colors (royal blue, crimson red, and gold) and the symbols (white equilateral triangle with the sun in the middle. There are three 5-pointed stars at each vertex of the triangle.

"With God to illumine them, and Masonry to inspire them, they fought the battle of emancipation and won." -Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo (Freemason and 1st President of the Philippines) speaking of the 1896 Filipino revolutionists.

"The successful Revolution of 1896 was masonically inspired, masonically led, and masonically executed. And I venture to say that the first Philippine Republic of which I was its humble president, was an achievement we owe, largely, to Masonry and the Freemasons." - Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, 1st President of the Philippine Republic.
