Long Philippine Flag Displayed In Zamboanga

An automotive spare parts store in Zamboanga City in Mindanao displays an unusual replica of the Philippine flag. May 28, 1898 was the day the Philippine flag was first unfurled near the port of Cavite Nuevo after the victory at the Battle of Alapan, where the Philippine Revolutionary Army lead by General Emilio Aguinaldo defeated the Spanish Army. This day is recognized today as National Flag Day. (Mindanao Examiner Photo Service)
