Flag Description

Two equal horizontal bands of blue (top; representing peace and justice) and red (representing courage). A white equilateral triangle based on the hoist side represents equality. The center of the triangle displays a yellow sun with eight primary rays, each representing one of the first eight provinces that sought independence from Spain. Each corner of the triangle contains a small, yellow, five-pointed star representing the three major geographical divisions of the country: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The design of the flag dates to 1897. In wartime the flag is flown upside down with the red band at the top.
