111th Philippine Independence Day
“ June 12, 1898 — The declaration of Philippine Independence
(from Spanish colonial rule) by Filipino revolutionary forces under
the leadership of General Emilio Aguinaldo.
“ In the presence of a huge crowd, the declaration, in the form of
a proclamation, was made between four and five in the afternoon
at the ancestral home of General Aguinaldo (later to become the
first president of the first Philippine Republic) in Cavite el Viejo
(now Kawit in Cavite), some 30 kilometers south of Manila.
The event saw the unfurling of the Philippine National Flag
(made in Hong Kong by Mrs. Marcela Agoncillo, Lorenza Agoncillo
and Delfina Herboza) and the playing of the National Anthem
‘Marcha Filipina Magdalo’ (now ‘Lupang Hinirang’) composed by
Julian Felipe, as performed by the San Francisco de Malabon
