On May 28 1898, the battle was fought between the Filipino revolutionaries, led by Aguinaldo, and the Spanish troops. The Spanish were defeated, and the revolutionaries recaptured the Province of Cavite.
After the said battle, Aguinaldo entered Cavite City and unfurled the would-be national flag for the first time.
Flag Day in the Philippines (May 28), is marked with the raising of the national flag. The flag is permanently displayed from May 28 to June 12 (Independence Day) by all government offices and agencies, businesses, educational institutions, and private residences.
In recent years, the flag days have been extended until June 30 to celebrate the country’s independence and promote patriotism.
