MANILA — With the country about to celebrate its 118th Independence Day this June 12, the Philippine Army (PA) has ordered all its major units to display the national flag in all military camps, bases and offices, starting May 15 to June 30.
This includes all major thoroughfares in these military facilities, said PA spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao.
Hao said the display of the national flag is part of the PA’s support activity for the annual June 12 celebrations which has the theme of “Kalayaan 2016: Pagkakaisa, Pag-aambagan, Pagsulong.”
A national flag day will also be celebrated this coming May 28 at Imus, Cavite as a take-off ceremony for this year’s commemoration. PNA/northboundasia.com
